Watch Video of Palm Harbor Homes -  WEATHERING HURRICANE IRMA!! Play Video

Like our friends and neighbors across the great state of Florida, Hurricane Irma hit many of us here at the Palm Harbor model center and factory personally with loss, and hit all of us through the losses of friends and loved ones. However, as evacuees from the Keys and the rest of Irma’s path of devastation across Florida anxiously return to their homes, our phones and email began to light up.  We have been thrilled to hear from so many of our happy and relieved homeowners who contacted us, eager to share their personal customer testimonials of how well their Palm Harbor homes weathered Hurricane Irma.  Here are just a few we have received that we thought you might enjoy.

Palm Harbor Customer Reviews: Our Home Weathered Hurricane Irma!

We live in Cudjoe Key, Florida. Our Palm Harbor home survived Hurricane Wilma, and now most recently, Hurricane Irma. Cudjoe Key, as you may know, was devastated by Hurricane Irma. However, our home received minimal damage. Just loss of roof shingles on one side, almost all skirting, and our duct work underneath the home. That’s pretty amazing strength and durability, being that Irma’s winds were 173 mph when she tore through our area. We just wanted to share our Palm Harbor customer review with you. Our house looks great & this is a tribute to the quality of homes Palm Harbor builds.

Hello, Palm Harbor – Plant City, Florida! I have wanted to write for a long time. My late husband and I bought our new home from you after a house fire in Feb 2002. Our home was called the Full House. Love it! Love it! It has been 15 years since then and I still love it today! In 2004, shortly after my husband passed away in July, we were in the midst of 4 hurricanes, Charley, Francis, Ivan and Jean. Ivan and Jean being the closest. My Palm Harbor home was so well put together that I didn’t even realize we were having a storm. I felt very secure. Now 13 yrs later with the threat of Hurricane Irma, my home was secure and sound. I had my window panels put up and barely knew a storm was there. The storm was fierce here in St. Petersburg, too. But not one shingle or siding came off. Am I lucky? Probably. But you build great homes. I tell people how much I love my home and recommend Palm Harbor Homes to everyone. I have never regretted the choice my husband and I made and I’m happy to give you a happy customer review. Thank you!

95% + every house in our area was damaged or completely destroyed. Most houses that looked as if they had minor outside damage were completely destroyed inside by water damage due to roof, soffit and eve failures. Our house was in the middle of the damage and we have ABSOLUTELY ZERO damage inside and out. The only thing that didn’t survive was the landscaping, car and contents in the downstairs enclosure which was minimal. We had 46" of water in the enclosure without any damage to the structure. We noticed other new Palm Harbor homes with no damage. THANK YOU FOR AN AWESOME BUILT HOME!!!!!!!

– Mike & Kara J , Little Torch Key, FL

We have been through 5 major hurricanes, in the past 15 years, and our Palm Harbor home is still standing. Thank you for building such a quality home.

Kudos to Palm Harbor Homes in Plant City, Florida. We just went through Hurricane Irma in Ruskin, Florida, and no damage whatsoever! They are built strong and beautiful! Thank you so much. We did not know what we would come home to, but it’s perfect ??!!

I live in Venice, Florida.  I bought a new Palm Harbor home in 2003.  I was so happy when I came back.  We had no damage at all.  Just wanted to thank you for a well built home.

– Dolores C, Venice, FL

I would be happy to do a commercial for Palm Harbor Homes.  The fear that I felt was very real, actually I thought I was going to die!!!! It sounded like a freight train and the 2 semi-tractor trailers heading straight for me.  Heard it, felt it, screamed for my husband, and couldn’t believe I wasn’t airborne or dead.  I will pass this on when selling…safer than stick built!!!  Now I can add a story of my home and I survived IRMA.  Way to build a STRONG HOME, PALM HARBOR!

– Lorraine D,  Lakeland, FL

Palm Harbor always advocates following local, regional and national weather and evacuation warnings.  However, it is good to know that the work we do to build strong homes gives so many of our Palm Harbor customers a place to come “home” to that really did weather the storm.

If you are purchasing a Palm Harbor home, be sure to ask your consultant about Wind Zone requirements for your area and additional hurricane-resistant construction features that are available.
