Tidewater Custom Modular Homes - Modular Homes

Our prayers go out to all those effected by the horrendous tornados that ripped through the American heartland. While very few things can stand up to direct hit from a F3, F4, or F5 tornado, the more common windstorms that occur frequently here in Portsmouth can do damage to your home as well. You significantly reduce the threat of storm damage to your home when it is constructed with modular home construction technology.

At the core of the modular home advantage is the fact that our homes are bolted together. Unlike traditional built homes that are nailed together, it is simple to envision which of the two types of construction is better prepared to stand up to mother nature. This is particularly meaningful for those homebuyers who will reside in hurricane-prone areas like here in Smithfield. Modular homes here in Portsmouth, VA handle the strong northeast storm winds and the high winds associated with various named storms. A number of severe storms devastated Virginia several years ago and it caused property damages reaching billions of dollars. We can expect more of that in the future.

The safe and sturdy nature of modular homes are just two of the countless benefits of modular construction over stick-built homes. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the long list of advantages to include how modular homes provide optimal energy efficiency with low air infiltration so you will significantly lower your energy consumption and energy cost.

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.
