Hey Strangers!! Long time since I’ve visited - mostly lurking; my focus these days is to circle the wagons, protect what I have and pay down debt - - - familiar story, I’m sure.
In my MH investing career, and in my travels to points eastward, I have noticed that in the east, and midwest, vinyl siding is a common and popular material, and a choice upgrade for MHs. Out here in the northwest, it’s pretty rare, comparatively. Wood siding and hardiboard is what we see.
When I drive by the new home dealers, all homes on the lot are wood or hardi - every one of them.
Why is that? I cannot think of any reason . . . I am considering installing vinyl on an older SW LH rental, and wondering if painting the metal would be a better alternative. Definitely would be cheaper, but for long-lasting looks and durability, I think vinyl may serve my purposes better - - - unless cloudy and rainy weather is a detriment somehow?
Anybody smart about this?
