About our “Economy” Skirting

Style-Crest “Economy” Vinyl Skirting is the most popular of our skirting options. Affordable, reliable, and simple to install. We normally have plenty on the floor so there’s not much lead time. It will last as long as you take care of it!

Calculating Material Usage

Manufactured homes come in many sizes, and you may have decks, porches, or additions attached to your home that you will need to cover, or perhaps you may only need to skirt a portion of your home. For this reason we do not offer a specific size of skirting kit, we sell only what you need. This section is designed to help you calculate the materials you will need.

 Please choose from one of the following categories or scroll down the page to follow our simple steps.

Calculating Trim

If you plan to cover the entire home, measure all four sides. For a 16′ wide x 76′ long house the 4 sides will total up to 184 lineal feet (LF) 

If you have to skirt a deck, add the sides coming away from the home to the total lineal footage. Normally, if you skirt around your deck, you don’t have to skirt behind the deck. The red line indicates where your skirting will be installed. 

Divide the total LF by 11.
All skirting trim pieces are 11′ long. 184 LF will require 17 pieces each of the top back, top front, and ground channel trim, or one Trim Kit (contains 15 pieces of each trim) plus 2 extra pieces of each trim. Weed-Eater Guard Trim, if wanted, is also calculated this way. 

Calculating Panels

Use a yardstick to measure from the ground to a point 2 inches above the bottom of the home’s siding. This is to determine how tall a panel must be to reach from the ground channel to the point where it is covered by the top trim. 

Knowing the average height helps to determine how many full panels will be needed. Most homes have average heights between 29″ and 35″. A full panel will be cut into 4 smaller panels, and when installed, will cover 64″, or 5.33 LF. 

If your home is set lower to the ground, you will need a fewer number of full panels. For an average height between 23″ and 28″, a full panel will be cut into 5 smaller panels, and when installed, will cover 80″, or 6.66 LF. 

If your home is set higher, you will need more panels. For an average height between 36″ and 46″, a full panel will be cut into 3 smaller panels, and when installed, will cover only 48″, or 4 LF. 

29″- 35″ Avg. Ht. : LF x .75 divided by 4= # of panels
(184 LF X .75)/4= 34.5 (Rounds up to 35 panels)

To calculate the total number of full panels (it’s the same for either vented panels or solid panels) you will need, use this handy formula: Total lineal feet times .75 divided by “x” (“x” is the number of cuts you can get from a full panel, according to the average height) 

Calculating Fasteners

You will need screws to install the top back trim, and to secure panels to the ground channel.  
A good formula for calculating screws is-
LF x 2.75 = # of screws recommended.

You will need ground spikes to secure the bottom channel to the ground. 5-7 spikes per piece of ground channel is recommended, but you may need more for sandy soil.

If your skirting runs over concrete instead of soil, use liquid adhesive instead of ground spikes to secure the ground channel.

One tube of liquid adhesive for every 15 lineal feet over concrete is recommended.

Wind Stay Rods may be used to secure panels to the top trim, allowing for panels to expand and contract with seasonal changes. One rod for every 5 LF is recommended.

If you don’t want the skirting to overlap the siding, you can attach mounting brackets to the underside of the wood frame in the wall. Affix the top back trim to the brackets and install your skirting. For best results use one bracket per lineal foot, but one bracket every two lineal feet would work okay, too.

Example: 184 LF= anywhere between 92 and 104 brackets, depending on desired rigidity.

Panels taller than 48″ become susceptible to wind damage and require interior bracing. Bracing can made with any sturdy material. We offer a method using Steel “J” Rail for bracing.

One 10′ piece of steel rail is recommended for every 5 LF over a 48″ panel height.

Vinyl Skirting Kit Component Chart

This handy chart shows the material requirements for the most common box sizes of manufactured homes. If you know the overall lineal footage of the area you want to skirt, this chart can show you at a glance about how much skirting you will need. Because the panel quantity will change with the average height, pick the panel column that reflects your average height. Please consult our skirting expert for special quotes.

Note: In the column headers, “Panels” = Solid Panels or Vented Panels, or a combination.
