System-built homes are engineered to be strong. In fact, a government study by FEMA following hurricane Andrew found that system built homes performed better then standard site-built homes. The report says: “System-built homes appear to have provided an inherently rigid system that performed much better then conventional residential framing.”
A stronger home is a safer home. Your home will last longer, require less maintenance and sustain less damage in the event of an earthquake, hurricane, wind storm, etc.
