Vinyl skirting for mobile homes is the incredibly popular because it is inexpensive and installs quickly. However, if you're having trouble with the wind blowing away vinyl skirting panels, then try these tips for keeping them put.
- Add extra nails to the bottom track. If you are landscaping up against the vinyl skirting for your mobile home, then support the track from behind with a treated 2x4 secured in place.
- Drive screws through the bottom track into the vinyl skirting panels. Drive a screw every other panel.
- Install wind rods for vinyl skirting. These are stiff metal bars that slide into the seam of the skirting panel and hook up underneath the top lip of the top track. The wind rods help secure the panels without the need for screws at the top. You do not want to use screws at the top of your panels. The panels need to float freely in the top track to prevent buckling as the seasons change.
