Keep reading to find out!

Inspect the Skirting

When it’s time to inspect the skirting around your mobile or manufactured home, what should you look for? First things first, look closely for any gaps, cracks, or holes that happened during the winter months. You’ll also want to look out for signs of general wear and tear, as well as any damages and determine if repairs are necessary. If you find your skirting does need to be replaced, you can call us for a free estimate!

Scrub the Skirting

After you’ve done your initial inspection and determined your skirting is in good shape, you’ll want to give your skirting a good scrub! Remove any dirt or debris with a pressure washer and a high-quality scrub brush. We suggest using a cleaning solution that is designed to clean your mobile or manufactured home so you know the job is done right the first time. 

Remember, if you find any gaps, cracks, or holes, it’s best to talk with an expert about your best method for repair.

Check the Insulation

While you’re checking on the skirting of your mobile or manufactured home, it’s a great time to evaluate your insulation needs. You’ll need to decide if adding insulation would be beneficial for your manufactured home. We always recommend our customers insulate their mobile homes to better regulate the temperature inside the house.

Making sure your mobile home is in good shape starts with you! Frequently inspect your skirting and insulation to make sure your mobile home is not in need of repair. Take precautions to seal or repair gaps or cracks as soon as you see them.
