Manufactured Homes and their Zones

Your home’s location within the United States will determine a zone in which it must be built to. The homes are built to withstand certain rates of wind and weather conditions.

The reason for these zone requirements is to provide the best safety and security for you and your family.

Wind and thermal are the two main components when it comes to these zones. Both are gauged on a scale of 1-3, 1 being the lowest in severity and 3 being the highest in severity.

Wind zones are based on the potential sustained winds in a given location. For instance, a home in Central Indiana will not face the same winds that a home near the coast of Florida would.

 On a similar note, that same home in Central Indiana would need a greater thermal insulation detail than the coastal Florida home. This is due to the drastically lower temperatures and seasonal snowfall seen in Indiana.
