Our Portfolio

We work with FORTIFIED Home™ Contractors

Created by the Institute for Business and Home Safety, FORTIFIED Home™ is a set of engineering and building standards to design and construct homes to a higher standard than most building codes. The FORTIFIED Home™ program offers a package of “code-plus” upgrades that greatly increase a new home’s resistance to natural perils, including hurricane, tornado, wildfire, flood, freezing weather, hail and earthquake, as well as to fire and interior water damage. Specifically, FORTIFIED requirements strengthen a home’s outer envelope – notably roof and wall systems, doors, glazed openings and foundation. Aran & Franklin Engineering is proud to be the exclusive engineer in Texas to provide specifications, design and inspections for the Fortified…for safer living® program.

Builders/Homeowners BEWARE:With the lumber shortage, we have seen inferior and/or imported products being substituted for certain construction material. As seen in the picture below taken after a small spring storm with 30 mph winds, we cannot compromise on quality, standards and strength, especially in coastal regions. We came across this notice from the North Carolina Dept. of Insurance that explains the issue. www.ncdoi.gov/news/press-releases/2021/06/15/nc-building-code-council-warns-use-european-lumber-n...“The council has determined European lumber, which is being imported to help with the nation’s lumber shortage, does not meet N.C. building code requirements and, in some cases, could cause catastrophic failures in wall, floor and roof framing.A primary concern is the specific gravity or wood density that affects the performance of fastening devices, such as nails, screws or gusset plates. A lower specific gravity may result in a decreased resistance capacity of a shear wall designed to withstand wind and seismic loads, lower gripping strength of a truss metal plate, or lower bending strength that could affect wall height.”#StrongerStructuresStrongerCommunities ...
