Once considered to be made of less quality materials, manufactured homes have come a long way in the building industry. A manufactured home offers more affordability than a site built home, which makes it a great choice for first time home buyers. Taking care of any investment is important, so here are some tips for caring for your manufactured home.
Have Good Insurance
Disaster can occur to any home, so you’ll want to carry insurance that can help you cover the loss of belongings and your home. Find an insurance provider who offers manufactured home insurance.
Check the Leveling
You should check the level of your home at least yearly with a carpenter’s level. This will ensure the structural integrity of your home. If you find it is not level, call a professional who is trained in leveling homes.
Watch for Rust
If you see rust around the frame, paint over it with a rust inhibitor.
If the caulking around your windows and doors shows signs of wear, caulk it with a pliable caulk to conserve energy and protect your home’s materials.
- Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding can stain if dirt is left on it for long periods of time. Wash your vinyl siding regularly with soap and water to prevent dirt build-up and mold.
