Customer Question

I was reading your answer about putting siding on an older Mobil home. Our Mobil home is non Mobil and has attachments on the right and left side of it. I would like to unify the look by adding vinal siding all 3 faces.

Good morning. My name's Kel. Would you expand on your question? Is your question about feasibility or how-to? You could install vinyl over the metal of a mobile home. Unless there's some sort of wooden sheathing under the metal you'd have to use heavier self-tapping screws like #10 to get enough bite, so they could resist wind load. One of the tricks will be detailing around doors and windows since the siding will project pass the finish. Will have a similar challenge at the roof. You'll need an excellent installer and be prepared to pay more than a standard vinyl installation. Does this make sense? Have I answered your question?
