If you’re planning to move into a manufactured home community, one of your greatest concerns will probably be how the structure is able to leverage on materials that are energy efficient. However, on top of the strict quality standards that each manufacturer has to adhere to, the production of a manufactured home actually utilizes several energy efficient building materials to ensure that your home will remain durable whilst minimizing your carbon footprint.

Here’s a breakdown of the most commonly used energy efficient building materials for manufactured homes.

Recycled Steel

Steel is definitely at the top of any experienced builder’s list owing to its excellent properties. In addition to its durability, corrosion resistance, low weight, high strength and ductility, steel is also easy to work with and affordable. If you are living in a state with extreme weather conditions like high wind or earthquakes, chances are recycled steel will be the common material that is suggested for building your home. Compared to other alloys of iron, steel contains significantly lower percentage of carbon, making it an eco-friendly material.  Furthermore, steel is also a prime choice due to the fact that it can be easily and entirely recycled – around two thirds of all new steel are made from recycled steel. This means that it is one of the most recycled materials and therefore causes less drain on the natural resources available to humans. On top of this, opting for steel will cut back on carbon emissions and your overall carbon footprint.

Spray Foam Insulation

This form of insulation is an alternative for those whose homes are unsuitable for cellulose or fiberglass insulation. In fact, this might be a better option as the spray foam is able to trap conditioned air in your building. This means that there will be less leakage of hot air, and therefore reducing the overall amount of energy used. In addition to this, the spray foam insulation is also made of renewable material that does not create harmful emissions. 

Bamboo Plywood

Bamboo plywood is a highly versatile material that can be used both in your interior design elements as well as in the construction of external walls, coverings, flooring, and cabinetry. It is also an increasingly renewable and extremely sustainable resource which will not cause the emission of volatile organic compounds. As it is non-toxic and can be used in its natural form, bamboo plywood is a great alternative to conventional laminates or hardwoods.

Thermostat Radiant Barrier Sheathing

Without capable wall and roof insulation, the comfort of your home is potentially compromised especially in extreme summer months. Created by Georgia-Pacific, Thermostat Radiant Barrier Sheathing creates a buffer from strong sun’s radiant heat, reducing your cooling costs.  Generally used for walls and roofs, this unique building material can help to lower attic temperature by up to 30 percent.
