“Home sweet home” doesn’t mean as much without a dash of your own personality. And let’s be honest, most mobile homes are built in a factory and shipped straight to your lot. This means your home’s boxy exterior might look similar or the same as others.
However, there are ways you can add character to your mobile home that are equally as stunning as they are budget-friendly. Installing new siding or skirting to your mobile home’s exterior comes with a lot of advantages, including the addition of unique style, lower energy bills, and an increased resale value.
Some siding and skirting types like wood, stone, and brick tend to be expensive and far too heavy for you to manage on your own. With lightweight, inexpensive products like faux exterior siding, you can bring color, texture, and unique style to your mobile home.
Benefits of Faux Exterior Siding for Your Mobile Home
So, what is faux exterior siding and how does it benefit you? Let’s start with a brief overview of the two faux exterior siding products we offer.
