Being located in Florida, quality home construction is of the utmost importance to withstanding the elements. At Plantation Oaks, we believe in building homes that exceed industry standards and safety standards. All of our manufactured homes are built through Skyline Homes and Palm Harbor Homes, which are known for their exceptional quality and design.

For this reason, each home is engineered for maximum strength, energy efficiency, and wind zone protection, typically exceeding state and Federal building requirements. Our homes are also constructed with 2x6 exterior wall construction, ensuring durability and strength. This robust construction technique, combined with double-pane windows, creates an energy-efficient house that will be well-protected over time. Here are five reasons to buy a manufactured home.

High-Quality Materials and Brands

Using top-quality materials is also essential for creating homes of superior quality and safety. We partner with trusted brands like Rheem, Delta, Owens-Corning, Coleman, Congolium, Shaw, and GE to ensure your new home is built with the most dependable materials in the industry. From plumbing fixtures to roofing materials, we only use products that meet our stringent quality standards.

Rigorous Quality Control

To ensure compliance with Federal Factory-Built Housing Construction Safety Standards (HUD code), our builders have comprehensive quality assurance plans. Every home is vigorously inspected during each phase of the construction process. This attention to detail ensures that your house is built to specific structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and safety standards.

Engineered Foundations and Hurricane Straps

All homes at Plantation Oaks are set on an engineered footer, which forms a solid foundation for your house. The perimeter of the home sits on a 16" wide and 8" deep concrete and rebar footer, providing stability and durability. Additionally, galvanized steel hurricane straps are installed to secure the home to the foundation. These hurricane straps are pressure tested and affixed to the steel beam base of the home, offering extra protection during severe weather conditions.

Climate-Controlled Manufacturing Facility

Unlike traditional home construction, all Plantation Oaks homes are built in a

climate-controlled manufacturing facility. This controlled environment eliminates exposure to the outside elements during the construction process, ensuring that your home is built with precision and accuracy. Additionally, all building materials are stored in an environmentally controlled warehouse, following the supplier's recommendations.

Compliance with Building Codes

Plantation Oaks is committed to adhering to the highest building standards in the industry. Our homebuilders actively support organizations such as the Systems Building Research Alliance, The Factory-Built Housing Institute, and The HUD Code Consensus Committee. These organizations work tirelessly to improve and update the building codes for factory-built housing, guaranteeing that your home meets the latest safety and construction regulations.
