Whether you’re building a new home or adding to your existing one, siding can help you achieve the look and feel of the home you want. While many options are available, knowing what will work best for your manufactured home and lifestyle is important. Here are some tips for selecting the best-manufactured home siding:

Consider Your Needs And Budget

There are many different types of manufactured home siding available, and each one offers unique benefits depending on how long you plan to live in your home, where you live, and the amount of maintenance that suits your lifestyle.

To help narrow down your options, get multiple estimates from local contractors specializing in manufactured home siding installation. They can provide information about durability, maintenance, and the look that best suits your area’s climate, as well as help determine if any special measures may be needed when installing this type of material on a mobile structure like a manufactured home.

Think About Durability, Maintenance, And The Look You Want

When choosing to side, it’s important to think about how long you want the siding to last. If you want your siding to last for more than 5 years, then we suggest considering aluminum or vinyl. They are both very durable and can be left exposed without any maintenance. If you want something that requires less maintenance but still looks good, consider using cedar shingles or aluminum lap siding. Both options will require regular cleaning and resealing every few years as they weather naturally over time.

Think About Where Your Manufactured Home Is Located

When choosing siding for your manufactured home, you’ll want to consider the climate where it will be located. For example, if you live in an area that gets a lot of rain and/or snow, then you should choose a more durable material like vinyl or aluminum. If you live in an area with extreme winds or not many insects, wood might be a better choice for your siding.

It is important to remember that no matter what material you choose for your manufactured home’s exterior wall covering (siding), it is important to have regular maintenance performed on your home by professionals who specialize in this type of work.

Look At The Warranty Options For Each Type Of Siding

Before you buy, make sure to check the warranty information for each type of siding. Warranties vary by manufacturer and type of siding. Some companies offer a lifetime warranty, while others offer a 10-year warranty. A good warranty is important to protect your investment if something breaks or peels within the first few years of installation.

Get Multiple Estimates When You have Your New Siding Installed.

When you are ready to make a decision, feel free to ask for estimates from multiple contractors. It’s important to get multiple estimates because they can vary significantly. A good contractor will not be offended if you ask them for a second opinion, and some even encourage it. You should also get an estimate from a manufacturer’s representative, even though it may cost more than other types of estimates. They have access to materials that are only available through this company, which means they can offer better prices than other companies might be able to provide as well as better performance because the siding material was designed specifically for manufactured homes instead of being modified from something made for traditional construction projects (which is often necessary when installing regular siding on MHs).


Whatever your siding needs are, it’s important to take the time to consider what type would be best for your manufactured home. There are so many options out there, and each one has its own unique benefits. If you follow these tips when selecting your manufactured home siding, then you are sure to end up with something that looks great and lasts for years!
