Major Types Of Mobile Home Steps


All steps for the front, side or back entrance to a mobile home are made from three basic materials: wood, concrete, and fiberglass.  These trailer home stairs are a necessity for any manufactured home, but they'll also work for just about any building that has a raised entrance and therefore require stairs for a safe and easy access.

This is the easiest and one of the cheapest solution when it comes to mobile home steps. In addition to being very easy to lift and move from one place to another, wooden steps will get you up to the level of entering your home for the least amount of money. However, these stairs are not as wide or deep as the other types of steps, having a lesser quality than concrete or fiberglass steps. Treated with a light coating of weather sealer in order to extend their life, these wooden steps are not as durable as other types. If you already possess these steps, don't forget to consider setting the base on a concrete or plastic base in order to avoid leaving the legs in standing water too long.

On Completemobilehomesupply.com you can find these steps from $60 (2 steps) to $105 (6 steps). These steps are 27" wide, and each one step is 7" deep and 8" high. They are manufactured from pressured treated wood, being mounted on a steel scissor frame that offers a better durability and strength.

Portable Concrete Steps

These steps are heavier and much more lasting than the previous one. A two-stepper needs at least three people to lift it and set in place, while the larger ones requires a forklift in order to be moved. However, when you'll get them in front of your mobile home, these concrete steps will last for years. This is a great advantage, especially for those who won't move so often and need good quality and resistant mobile home steps. These steps are quite difficult to keep entirely uniform, as edges will usually chip when knocked with enough pressure. Therefore try to choose concrete steps with rounded edges.

On completemobilehomesupply.com you can find these quality concrete steps at about $105 (1 step), reaching $400 (for 5 steps). They are about 47" wide and each step is 11.5" deep and 7" high. Other good products can be found on alibaba.com and afence.com, with prices varying from $196.16 to $259.40 ( for 4 steps).

Portable Fiberglass Steps

These modern fiberglass steps bring the best of both worlds, being one of the most interesting choice for mobile home steps. Being lighter than the concrete steps and in the same time much more durable than the wooden steps, they provide a high performance and increased durability. Usually built around a wooden frame, these fiberglass steps will last more than a decade, withstanding bad weather and also providing a wider and safer entrance into your mobile home.

When moving, the fiberglass steps must be treated carefully, as they possess individual strands of fiber sticking out along the sides, which are quite sharp and dangerous. By wearing a pair of gloves can help you to easily avoid them.

On completemobilehomesupply.com, these steps comes in various sizes and prices, from $185 (for 3 steps) to $425 (6 steps). They are 36" wide, and each step is 11.5" deep and 8" high . They also provide quality fiberglass and metal steps for mobile homes, from $130.00 (1 step) to $450.00 (for 5 steps). These steps have a rugged slip-resistant surface coating, being very easy to assemble because of the instructions in the kit.
