Concrete Skirting – Silvercrest MO7
How did we get to skirting a Silvercrest MO7? Beginning our journey in 2000 after applying for patents for a concrete skirting product for mobile homes. Moreover, the idea was not a new one to the industry. People were pouring 2” slabs of concrete, very heavy, then tilting them into place. Obviously, people were desiring a concrete foundation look without the costs.
The Problem & Solution
An equitable method of creating these concrete skirting panels was lacking. Most certainly, this was a problem. So, we invented a solution and a company was born. Furthermore, the product was named DURASKIRT™.
Original Panels Were Heavy & Bulky – Why Silvercrest MO7?
Our solution began with constructing heavy concrete panels. Of course, although cumbersome, installing these concrete skirting panels was quick. As a result, one of the first homes getting skirting was a Silvercrest M07.
More so, the corners were numerous and finishing it the owners were pleased. Additionally, you can see from these photos DURASKIRT™ was still using the plastic vents which became obsolete in 2010. Additionally, designing the “Hidden Vent System” and implementing the cut-able filler panel into mass production.
A New Concept Was Born
When DURASKIRT began, Indeed, it was entirely different in its construction and production cycle. Obviously, the giant heavy (165 lb.) panels became obsolete to these 65 lb. panels. Especially now in 2023 that it is 68 lbs and has Geotech fabric into the bottom of the filler. What you see now is an entirely new product called DURASKIRT™ PRO & Shed Skirting.
“A scaled down version of a commercial tilt-up concrete wall.”
Soon we decided to call the fillers DURASKIRT™ Pro version. Furthermore, they were a premium version made with the newest concrete add mixtures and galvanizing wire reinforcing. In a basic sense, these panels were like constructing by exactly scaling down a tilt-up wall. Comparatively, many commercial buildings employ a tilt-up concrete panel system.
Concrete Board or Cement Boards
More so, the great thing was using these panels for replacing the original panels works. Besides, this is not the only positive outcome as marketing them for other uses is now feasible. As they became popular some people started calling them Concrete Board or Cement Boards.
Not only for skirting a Silvercrest MO7. Now, these concrete panels are now finding their way as skirting on decks, park models, wainscoting on pole buildings, covering insulation on commercial structures, manufactured home skirting, shed skirting, mobile homes as mentioned before, modular trailers for offices or classrooms and more. DURASKIRT, LLC is planning more for its uses and the future will tell the story as it unfolds.
