Installing DIY Park Model Skirting
Obviously, the best way for beginning is by choosing the right park model skirting kit. Moreover, choosing DIY park model skirting can be challenging too. Likewise, choosing from several types of skirting starting with cheap plastic to concrete skirting. Decisively, our preference is using concrete skirting.
Of course, mostly for making sense for every climate and long-term enjoyment. Furthermore, beginning with a 2” drip edge metal, usually white. Additionally, screwing it under the home’s perimeter and flushing it with the siding.
Furthermore, time for taking measurements to the ground. To explain, making sure you’re excavating at least 2” to 4” into the soil. Likewise, using DIY park model skirting by forming a barrier against rodents and large animals. Also, you can add a wire screen buried under the panels for extra security if you like.
Once establishing the grade it’s time for deciding a few things. Specifically, where we’re wanting the water access, sewer, and crawlspace(s). Similarly, beginning with cutting and fitting the panels then setting out the hardware for the skirting. Finally, after finishing the concrete panels they look and feel like a residential home.
What if It’s On A Slope?
In particular, sloping lots are all too common and require a special set of instructions. For this reason, we have written: “How to Skirt A Home Over 38 On A Sloped Lot” explaining this application in detail.
Setting The Concrete Panels
Certainly, after placing the concrete panels it’s time for adding the door hardware. Likewise, adding the grey concrete filler to the joints. Equally important, we use a specially formulated cement powder on the wet caulking. As a result, for making the panels appear seamless. Next, it’s time for installing a unique ventilating system.
DIY Park Model Skirting & The Unique Hidden-Vent System
Indeed, installing a DURASKIRT™ concrete paneling system has benefits. Most importantly is the exclusive “Hidden-Vent” system. Surely the panels work cohesively for forming the “Hidden-Vent” easily over their tops. Again, this venting is an unsurpassed way for venting the crawl area. Specifically, forming an even airflow preventing dead air spaces.
Definitely, from our perspective, DURASKIRT™ is the best quality DIY park model skirting.
After finishing all the panels, venting, doors, and caulking it’s time for back-filling. Namely, using soils that were disturbed by excavating. Finally, by leveling the dirt you can step back and take pride in all of your accomplishments. Thus, completing a concrete panel skirting job that’s well done. Truly, a customer was quoted as saying “DURASKIRT™ and be done.”
