Is it true that modular homes are built stronger than site built homes?
You can be confident that modular homes are built much sturdier than site built homes. Because our modular homes need to be moved to the site, they are engineered to a higher standard of strength than stick-built homes. Decking, sheathing, framing, and drywall are nailed, screwed, and glued to add strength to the structure and make our modular homes more durable against the adverse effects from nature. Most estimates suggest between 20-40% more lumber and fasteners are used in a factory-built homes compared to similar site-built homes. Even FEMA confirmed that modular homes withstand hurricanes better than conventional site-built homes.
