Manufactured Homes and their Zones

Your home’s location within the United States will determine the zone in which it must be built. These homes are built to withstand specific 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 of these zones. Both are gauged on a scale of 1-3, with 1 being the lowest in severity and 3 being the highest.

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 house near the coast of Florida would.

 Similarly, that home in Central Indiana would need greater thermal insulation than the coastal Florida home. This is due to Indiana’s drastically lower temperatures and seasonal snowfall.
