Fema, Hurricanes, and Modular Homes



 

Building Performance: Hurricane Andrew in Florida

This page documents that even in 1992 the "Modular Homes" were so well constructed that they withstood the ravages of Hurricane Andrew. Since then many additional requirements have been forced upon our industry making them further "bullet proof", many requirements we actually deem unnecessary and adding cost to "you" the buyer...(read more here)



Why FEMA Says Modular Homes Are Safe

While no manufacturer would ever be so bold as to say that their homes are hurricane-proof, it has been proved time and again that modular homes stand up to extreme conditions much better than their site-built counterparts.

When Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast and homeowners went to tally up the damage, modular homes fared significantly better. FEMA has continually praised modular construction for sound workmanship dating all the way back to a report they issued back in 1993 about Hurricane Andrew hitting Florida...(read more here)



6 Things A Modular Home Is NOT

Modular construction is by no means a new industry. It has been around since prefabricated homes got their start, survived through all sorts of ill-informed iterations that gave it a bad name, and has finally arrived at the forefront of new housing innovation. In order to learn more about modular homes, let's take a look first at what they are NOT....(read more here)

Our building contractor, Ed Whitson, is very experienced and knowledgeable, and he guided us all the way through to the finishing touches. He lined up all the subcontractors for the cement, plumbing, electricity, and lifting of the home. He even acquired all of the state and local permits and surveys, and checked all the codes. He was very professional and left us with no worries.

I can highly recommend Ed Whitson Builders. We own a lot on Ft. Morgan that presented many challenges to home construction. Ed worked with us for several years prior to placing the home and has carried through on his promises unwaveringly. We are very happy with our modular home. Ed is friendly, knowledgeable, and unflappable, a nice combination of characteristics in someone you are entrusting with a large investment. I would not hesitate to have Ed place another house for us.

In 2016, my husband and I were looking for a modular home company that had the quality and details we wanted in our new home. Since this would be our second modular we had done, we were very familiar with the process and the construction of these homes. We had met with several companies and was very excited when with met with Ed Whitson of Whitson Builders as his company had the quality and details we were looking for. I am so glad we decided to go with Ed. It was the right decision for us.

The quality of the construction is such that the home can withstand 150 MPH hurricane force winds. The home came carpeted, with crown molding window valances and blinds throughout. Just add your own furniture for the final touch. Modular is definitely the way to go - lower price than stick built and superb quality.

When you are ready to build, go modular and select Eddie Whitson as your builder - there is no better choice.

In 2015 we purchased a Whitson Builders Modular home for our lot in Fort Morgan, Alabama. The sole purpose of this purchase was to use it as a Vacation Rental (VRBO - Vacation Rental By Owner). The home was up and ready to go in 2 month's generating a lucrative income. We are currently looking at another property to purchase and will most definitly do another Modular with Ed Whitson.

We are very pleased with the entire project and with Ed Whitson.
