The construction of new manufactured homes is regulated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Building Code. Also known as the HUD Code, this is one of the biggest benefits of new manufactured homes. The HUD Code regulates manufactured home strength and durability, fire resistance, wind safety, energy efficiency, and overall quality. This code also sets performance standards for heating, plumbing, air conditioning, and thermal electrical systems. That means manufactured homes are the only form of housing subject to a federally mandated national building code! As a result, you’re guaranteed a home built to rigorous safety standards and to serve you for many years. Plus, a manufactured home will cost you less than a stick-built home and offer you many more custom options.
