Mobile Home Spring Tune-Up 2019

As the colder temperatures reluctantly recede into warmer weather, it’s time for your Mobile Home Spring Tune-Up. If you’re interested in sprucing up your manufactured home, what you can accomplish is limited only by your ambition. Here are four easy and affordable ideas from Mobile Home Parts Store to get you started on your next home improvement project of 2019.

 

Painting Your Mobile Canvas

One of the easiest ways to get your mobile home out of the winter rut and increase its curb appeal is to give it a fresh coat of paint. The melting and refreezing of water during the winter can leave the paint on mobile home doors, shutters, and siding in disarray.  Fresh paint can resolve the current peeling or faded coat, help protect your mobile home’s exterior, and bring new energy into your living space. Painting is a relatively low cost, especially if you feel comfortable doing it yourself. What are you waiting for? Get out there, Picasso!

 

Show Your Lawn Some Love

 

In addition to your mobile home, it’s likely your landscaping will also need a tune-up. Remember to inspect any irrigation systems, exterior taps, and sprinklers, and replace them if they’re damaged. Inspect the footpaths to and from your home, as they may have suffered wear from the snow and water. A poorly maintained footpath can be hazardous to both travelers and curb appeal.

The grass around your mobile home may be in need of attention. Before breaking out the fertilizer, clear your lawn of any branches, leaves, and rotting wood. If you’re looking to add more plant life to your property, consider installing window boxes and creating container gardens. Gardening is a great way to sustain your home with delicious vegetables, and improve your mental health.

 

Don’t Skirt Your Skirting

Skirting is unique to manufactured home living. A mobile home’s skirting protects the underside from pests, water, and debris while keeping the interior temperature stable. It’s important to make sure your mobile home skirting is in good condition, and that air circulates properly throughout the space. If your skirting is in need of repair, or you’re interested in a more decorative look, you can buy mobile home skirting by visiting our website.

 

Outdoor Ambitions and Exterior Additions

 

If you’re feeling ambitious, you can take your spring tune-up as an opportunity to invest in some larger remodeling projects. For example, adding or expanding a patio or porch can create plenty of additional space for enjoying the warmer weather. With the addition of this increased recreational area, consider installing an awning or canopy to complete the experience. If home additions aren’t in your forecast, inspect the condition of your exterior stairs. If they’re looking a little worse for wear, replacing them should be a high priority.

 

After being holed up inside all winter, tackling your mobile home spring tune-up can be a little intimidating. Fortunately, with help from Mobile Home Parts Store, it doesn’t have to be.
