Why Use Tie Downs and Hurricane Straps?
Tie downs and hurricane straps are essential for protecting your manufactured home against high winds and hurricanes. They work by anchoring your home to the ground, preventing it from being lifted or shifted during a storm. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), tie downs and hurricane straps are effective in reducing damage to manufactured homes during severe weather events.
Benefits of Retro-Fitting
Retro-fitting involves adding tie downs and hurricane straps to an existing manufactured home that was not originally built with these features. This process can significantly improve the structural integrity of your home and protect it against future storms. In fact, a study by the University of Florida found that retro-fitted manufactured homes were less likely to experience damage during hurricanes than non-retrofitted homes.
