Hurricane-Proof Modular Homes

Tidewater Custom Modular Homes - Hurricane-Proof Modular Homes

In Virginia, where, as we know, hurricanes and severe storms can hit at any time, homebuyers require stronger and more resilient homes that can withstand strong wind and floodwater. However, when there is a demand for sturdier foundations and construction, this usually also translates to higher construction costs. Fortunately, modular construction can provide tough and robust homes at an affordable price and in a more timely manner.

Modular homes are built and designed from top quality materials and designed using cutting edge technology to produce more durable and resilient homes. In hurricane stricken locations, modular builders even fortify these homes to resist and defy up to 180 mph strong winds. With a series of on-site QA inspections, the modules are guaranteed to meet or exceed local and state building codes.

During construction, modules are glued and screwed to make them sturdier and able to withstand transport. This means they are sturdier homes than those built through traditional stick-built construction. Steel is applied to anchor and stabilize the structure so it can stay tough against excessive winds. Modular pilings with built-in smart vents are also applied in homes situated in flood prone areas so, in case of flooding, water can't accumulate and will flow in and out of the vents.

In spite of all these amazing features, modular home cost are still affordable because this building system makes completion time faster with less materials waste. Modular building systems employ a controlled environment and advanced technology to make this possible. Contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes for strong, hurricane-proof homes.

Why Custom Modular Homes are More Safe Than Traditional Stick-Built Homes

Tidewater Custom Modular Homes

Custom modular home construction is simply more safe and sturdy than traditional home construction for a host of reasons. First, they are more resistant to natural forces because of precision cuts that are fit and fastened largely within a computer controlled factory. The construction technology for modular homes calls for bolting, glue-nailed sheathing and decking, and increased volume of framing members. Bottom line, bolts and computer-aided precision fitting is simply better than what a human’s free hand can produce. This makes modular homes much more capable to endure nature's onslaughts.

The strength of local building codes varies from local to local. Traditional stick-building home builders build to those standards to save on construction cost. Frankly, some of those building code standards aren’t that high, and introduce very real quality risk into your future home’s strength. With custom modular home construction, there is no variance in quality. They are all precisely built and deliver a superior product in every single local across Hampton Roads.
