Our Unique Approach The Most Advanced Solution Available
Securing your home with mobile home tie-downs is one of the best ways to prevent it from toppling over during heavy winds. While the cheaper, do-it-yourself straps claim to be sufficient, there is no adequate substitution for professionally installed tie-downs. The looks of the cheaper straps also leave a lot to be desired, and many homeowners complain of the unsightly strap that wraps completely around the house.
Unlike most other mobile home tie-down installers, we use an advanced approach that involves both transverse and lateral connectors. This method provides unparalleled support and stability for your home, even during heavy storms.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mobile Home Tie-Downs
Owners of mobile and manufactured homes have many choices to make when it comes to their home maintenance. With tie-downs, there are many varied options to choose from and conflicting advice on what is actually necessary.

Mobile home tie-downs are support structures that connect to the I-beams of your mobile or manufactured home. These supports help to anchor your home to the ground in the event of a storm.
The state of Washington requires that all mobile and manufactured homes be tied down or anchored in some way. But state and local regulations are not the only entities concerned with the security of your home—many lenders will require the home to have tie-downs before they give loans for the purchase or renovation of a manufactured home. If you were to try to sell a manufactured home that does not have tie-downs, it's likely that the buyer would not be able to secure financing.
Setting your manufactured home on a concrete base is one of the best ways to help it maintain its value. However, many people mistakenly think that a concrete slab will prevent the need for tie-downs. In fact, there is a special concrete anchor that can be placed that will further secure the home. Ideally, this anchor is placed during the installation of the slab, but it can be installed afterward by a professional.
