Skirting & Insulation
“It gives me pleasure to help, and make someone’s home warm & cozy.”
– Keith Weeks
Modular Home Skirting
We offer high quality, affordable skirting and insulation services to our Okanagan and area customers who need skirting installation or repairs. The benefits of insulating and skirting your trailer are vital throughout the winter months. Skirting is aesthetic, hiding the under-structure of your home and along with insulation, adds a barrier to keep your pipes from freezing. Skirting and insulation help in maintaining a temperature average so your floors stay warmer, and creates a great space for seasonal storage. We take care of every aspect of skirting installation, including the boarding channeling, footing for attachment or vinyl back, top and ground tracks. For extra protection to prevent frozen pipes, we wrap the pipes in heat tape. We do not use plastic for skirting. We use high quality, affordable 2 x 4 wood and smart panelling.
We also install and repair skirting for travel trailers and 5th wheels on permanent sites.
The underbelly (sheeting) or bladder of your modular home needs to be in good condition in order to protect the insulation and keep out moisture, insects and rodents. Our services include replacing the entire polyethylene sheet, or repairing the existing one if possible. After a thorough inspection, we will be able to determine which route is best for you. Replacing the underbelly is not easily done, as pipes and ductwork need to be considered, plus the awkwardness of the working space makes this task difficult. We replace the existing bladder with new plywood and insulation. You can keep your home in great condition for years to come, using our experience and knowledge in preparing this under-surface for you. If needed, we will wrap your pipes with heat tape and install proper dryer venting while we are on-site.
If we find any damage to your foundation while we are under your home during the inspection stage, we will discuss this with you so have the option and convenience of having the repairs fixed while we are on-site.
Deck Building and Leveling
To expand your outdoor living space, we build decks on minimum 16-inch trailer pads with blocking and use pressure treated wood to protect your investment from the elements. If you have an existing deck that has shifted to an uneven state, we can level and secure this structure for you.
