Overcoming challenges to make manufactured home look like a house
Making a manufactured home look like a house sounds simple. Right? Not so, because of the costs. Okay then you say, “what costs are you talking about. Please explain. Right?” When we began the process of developing DURASKIRT™ there were companies pouring footings and stem-wall facades.
Stem wall foundation (non-supporting façade)
This method requires rolling or crane setting the mobile home over the facade. Ridiculous and expensive right? Moreover, people were willing to pay the price because this method accomplishes the look they were after. However, many began thinking of more economical ways to do this.
Treated Plywood Skirting Method
One method that was tried and failed was painting treated plywood a grayish concrete color. Though, the finished product looked okay it soon was needing painting and eventually replacing. Likewise, the treated plywood in due course rots when back-filling.
When Hardie panels hit the market the mobile home industry jumped at the chance to use this product for skirting. Additionally, contractors were quick to paint this concrete color too to make a manufactured look like a house. But, like any other papier-mâché products this material hates ground moisture.
Ground moisture quickly taking its course within a few years this product began deteriorating. Besides, witnessing our customers replacing Hardie skirting with holes is sad. Also, this product was never designed for ground contact although one ingredient was cement.
Buy the right skirting products
Firstly, Mobile home skirting, products need to survive the environment of ground contact. Likewise, looking for ground contact skirting products are very few but worth it. Ultimately, DURASKIRT™ is an intelligent skirting choice for preventive maintenance.
