Beautify Your Home And Protect Your Investment With New Mobile Home Siding
It is important when you live in a modular or manufactured home to keep your siding in good repair. Broken and damaged siding is unsightly to look at, but it can also lead to heat and air conditioning leaks, infestations of insects or even rodents, and damage to the structure of your home. If it is time to replace your mobile home siding, you have a few options at your disposal.
At mobilehomepartsstore.com, you will find a few modern ideas for the aftermarket replacement of your current siding. Harbour Crest Double 4 Dutch Vinyl Siding features a deep wood grain embossed look, a locking system that keeps the siding securely attached to the home, and the ability to eliminate problems with mold and mildew as well as wood booring insects. Each piece is 8 inches wide and 12 ½ feet long. A box of 24 pieces will cover 200 square feet and sells for $189.26.
If you prefer aluminum siding, you can find Deluxe Aluminum Mesa Siding at mobilehomestuffstore.com. The slats are 48 inches wide by 96 inches long, and the white baked enamel finish is embossed with a wood grain finish. Each panel sells for $92.00. If you choose to purchase this as part of your exterior remodeling project, you will find that matching gutter and trim pieces are for sale at this site as well.
Sometimes your trailer or mobile home does not need an entirely new siding job, but simply needs new skirting. At skirtingdirect.com, you will find what you need at discount prices, like Everlock Deluxe Vinyl Skirting. This product features a triple lock system, including a bottom rail lock that holds the skirting firmly in place in inclement weather; a panel lock which holds each piece securely to the next; and the top rail lock, which holds your skirting tightly to your mobile home. It is also available in six earthy tones. Each panel measures 16 inches wide by 12 inches tall and sells for $7.00.
If you purchased a used mobile home, you may be interested in upgrading your skirting or siding, as well as giving it your own personal decorative touch.
