Brick Skirting Gives Mobile Home A New Look
"It gives any mobile home the beauty and look of a partial brick home," says Dan Spiller, Stonecote Co., Inc., Cleburne, Texas, about the company's new "Stonecote" skirting that looks and feels like real brick, stone, or rock.
The skirting consists of panels up to 16 ft. long and 4 ft. wide. They have a hard masonary-type facing over a 2-in. thick styrofoam backing. Panels are available in four designs including brick, rock (random sizes), Austin-cut stone, and textured, and in seven colors including white, cream, tan, light gray (mortar color), Confederate gray, Thunder gray, and deck red. The panels are buried 4 in. deep in the ground to keep animals from getting under the house. A capstone fits over the top of each panel and screws to the house. "It makes any mobile home look like a site-built home and won't rot, warp, or deteriorate," says Spiller. "It looks and feels so real that after it's installed you can't tell the difference between it and the real material. It's more durable and will absorb a much harder impact than vinyl or metal. Another advantage is that the styrofoam and stonecote pro-vide a high insulation value which should reduce your heating and cooling bill considerably."
