Factory Built

Built to allow interior moisture to escape, preventing the buildup of moisture vapor in the walls.

Water-resistive, so water can't get in and damage walls or insulation

Air infiltration reduced by up to 63%, helping to minimize Heating and AC cost.

The use of 1/4" Fome-Cor® Board to further protect the exterior of manufactured homes makes a lot of sense.

In this application, 1/4" Fome-Cor Board is produced up to 8' tall with an accordion-folded design that allows for a continuous protective wrap around the structure. Whether installing Fome-Cor Board over open studs or over wood-based sheathing, it's wise to protect the structure from air and water leakage that can occur normally through construction seams
