Ramada roof

Post by MarPar » Mon Oct 07, 2013 12:47 pm

I am able to get a good deal on a 2003 singlewide. The deal is it is down in New Mexico and I'm in Colordao. It has a 20lb roof load and I want to move it too an area that requires a 30lb roof load. Would a properly engineered (to 30lb specs) "ramada roof" be a option? Any other options I could consider?

The Federal HUD code regulates the construction of new manufactured homes.

Every building permit authority across the country has their own codes for what modifications are permitted locally. You need to contact the local building department where the home will be installed to learn if they will let you install the home and then make the modifications.
