Benefits of Mobile Home Skirting
#1: Protecting the longevity of your home
Mobile home skirting is a barrier that acts as the first line of defence against harsh elements that can cause damage to your home such as snow, ice and rain.
If left unprotected, snow and ice can build up on your pipes and cause them to burst resulting in costly repairs (and stress)! By proactively and professionally installing modular home skirting, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your home is well protected.
#2. Adding curb appeal
A mobile home left without skirting is like a door left without trim – it can look unfinished which can, in turn, decrease curb appeal. The design of your home is completely up to you, which includes choosing the style of your skirting. Jandel Homes offers three types of skirting to suit your personal preferences.
Leaving a gap between your home and the ground open allows for cold air to trickle into the house. This is especially challenging for mobile home owners in Western Canada who are susceptible to long, cold winters. Closing this gap with skirting creates a thermal envelope around your home, which will prevent cold air from creeping in and help regulate the temperature of your home.
Did you know that Jandel Homes provides an insulated skirting option? We’ll discuss this option later in this blog post.
