Mobile home skirting is essentially designed to keep rodents and small animals from hiding under your home. An alternative to traditional mobile home skirting is to use materials other than conventional skirting, such as vinyl, concrete, and brick. Vinyl comes in a variety of colors and can be manipulated to look like brick or stone. Concrete is the most resilient choice. Plants growing around it will not cause damage. It will also resist heavy winds. Finally, you could choose brick, which is another stable form of skirting that does not buckle quickly under weather conditions.
