Mobile Home skirting Vinyl Siding Questions

Beitragvon truejalopy » Fr 14. Jun 2019, 20:32

I've watched and found very informational your YouTube video on "How To Install Vinyl Siding On Your House."My first question is, in terms of vinyl siding on a mobile home, manufactured home, etc, is there any difference in the installation process or anything that would be majorly different that you can think of or any tips or suggestions you may have?Second question is, (if you can imagine what I'm describing) the mobile home in question is totally rectangular all the way around, the roof is flat, meaning there are no overlaps from a roof, etc.

Does installing soffit and fascia apply to a home like this? If so, how would it be installed versus how you do it in your video? And if it doesn't apply, would the siding just attach to a J Channel at the top of the home? And then what?

Well first off I am assuming your mobile home is over 20 yrs old if you are looking at a siding replacement . Most of the older homes are pretty cheaply built compared to any standard home, More than likely 2x2 studs only and there may only be the aluminum siding directly over the 2x2s with no sheathing at all. So the first process is to figure out if there is any sheathing (plywood,OSB) on the exterior under the existing siding. If there is not you need to install some before adding house wrap and then vinyl siding.

If there is no roof over hang then you have no need for soffit and depending on the design of the roof likely no need for fascia either except possibly on the from and back ends of the roof were may Mobile Homes had a slight over hang.

To start the siding usually you need a drip cap at the bottom edge of the walls above the skirting and then either a starter strip or J channel. When completing the vinyl at the top of the walls it kind of depends on the type of existing roofing as far as how to finish it. The main thing is you want to prevent water from running off the roof and straight in behind the siding. You will have to take a closer look at that area to determine if it is doable.

Because Most MHs are 2x2 construction they are poorly insulated and I have seen people pull off the exterior siding, remove the existing batt insulation ,add more 2x2 s to the exterior to deepen the cavity and then have the walls insulated with spray foam from the outside, install plywood or OSB and install new windows,doors and finally siding. This is a more costly option obviously but seals the MH up very well.
