Why DURASKIRT™? A Component of a Manufactured Home Foundation
Reason #1 – Proprietary Manufactured Home Foundations
E.R.B.S. Make Up Another Component of a Manufactured Home Foundation
Let’s talk about the reasons, why DURASKIRT™? Did you know, over the past twenty-five years the manufactured home industry has undergone many changes? Moreover, one of those changing aspects is the use of proprietary engineered manufactured home foundations called E.R.B.S.
Earthquake Resistant Bracing Systems (E.R.B.S.) replacing tie-downs, runners and slabs. Additionally, these systems are replacing the need for concrete. Of course, the rising needs for a concrete skirting supporting itself on native soils or gravel pads.
Reason #2 – Better Rodent Deterrence
Many, whom are living in manufactured homes, can attest to having rodent problems. Likewise, the causes for this can be attributed to only one thing, namely, poor quality skirting. As a matter of fact, the list of problems rodents are causing is vast.
Furthermore, the bottom line is these costs can be well into tens of thousands of dollars in damages. Additionally, high heating or air-conditioning bills due to rodent holes through insulation and ducting.
To say nothing of, our years of crawling under theses homes and being firsthand witnesses. In the light of these issues is more reasons we began producing DURASKIRT™. Equally important, we understanding people needing a quality durable reasonably priced barrier system.
Not only can it be back filled without quickly rotting away but strong to keep rodents at bay. Furthermore, we observed a problem with venting and solved this issue with the “Hidden-Vent.”
Reason #3 – Hidden-Vent
Uniquely, the “Hidden-Vent” allows continuous airflow so there’s no dead airspace. Too, because of its location and size it performs well as an unsurpassed rodent guard. Not to mention, there are other surprising features to the “Hidden-Vent” as well:
- Continuous Airflow (No Dead Air Between Vents)
- Unsurpassed Rodent Guard and Deters Large Animals
- No Vent Wells Needed
- Preventing Lawn Sprinklers from Soaking Crawlspace Through Vents
Reason #4 – Why DURASKIRT™ – Protects Against Rot
Equally important, through the years, and replacing hundreds of skirting made of wood, vinyl and masonry block. Moreover, we commonly are finding the home is rotting at the contact points of the skirting. As a matter of fact, after investigating, we find that moisture is being trapped. To say nothing, trapping moisture is detrimental.
An important feature is designing DURASKIRT™ leaving airspaces between the top of the panels and the base of the home. This unique feature is working preventing trapping moisture and as a result rot. Lastly, this is very important for the longevity of your manufactured home.
