It is no secret that Texas climate can be intense. With raging summers, icy winters, severe thunderstorms, tornados, and even hurricanes, we are a state with a well-known reputation for toughing out some extreme weather. When you are searching for a home for your family, you need it to withstand anything the Texas climate can throw at it. Palm Harbor Homes are built to withstand and thrive in any environment, especially Texas. Here are some simple steps you can take to help protect your manufactured home from the harsh weather in the Lone Star State.
Every home should be given a thorough look over on a regular basis. The best way to prevent big problems from occurring is to catch them when they are small fixes. Generally, people make it a habit on a seasonal basis to check their home for any small bits of wear, tear, or damage. If you have gone through a particularly harsh storm, it is wise to make sure your home has made it out unscathed. While Palm Harbor Homes are specifically engineered to a higher safety standard, but just like any home, normal wear and tear may still occur and it is best to take care of it sooner rather than later.
Keep It Clean
Make sure to keep the outside of your home clean and free of dirt and debris. Debris or dirt that is pressed up against your home can trap moisture, which can deteriorate the finish and shorten the lifespan of your materials. Keeping the outside of your home nice and tidy can help further reflect sunlight which keeps your home cooler during the hot Texas summer.
