Sturdy, Solid Manufactured Homes
On August 10, 2020, a "derecho" storm blew from Nebraska to Indiana. We hadn’t even heard of a derecho until Cedar Rapids, Iowa caught the brunt of the 50 mile wide storm with 140mph wind gusts lasting 45 minutes.
Derecho is Spanish for “straight ahead”. It’s not a tornado, it’s actually an inland hurricane.
Manufactured homes are installed according to stringent state and national building codes. You never realize or appreciate the manufactured home construction and installation standards until you’re hit by hurricane force winds. We’ve got proof – they’re effective.
