Faux Stone Porch Skirting Option

Audrey from Maine writes:

"We are looking for a faux stone porch skirting. One that is easy to install and does not require a mason to install.

We have not been able to find anything like that. Do you know of anything available?"

Faux Stone Panel Option

Usually made from polyurethane, faux stone panels are very light not only making them cost effective but also making installation very easy too. Durable, they are constructed to withstand the elements like wind, heat and cold temps, and moisture.

They are not prone to crack or peel either. Faux stone panels often come in a wide range of textures and colors to match or complement any home. And they have the look of actual brick or stone.


Found Two Really Good Faux Stone Porch Skirting Sources

Audrey, thank you for writing to us about your porch skirting question. You have a great house.

Below are samples of faux stone porch skirting panels we found at Amazon.com and the Mobile Home Parts Store. Both sources have a section on faux stone siding, which according to your photo, may be ideal for your situation. It appears they have a wide variety of panels from which to choose.

What is Porch Skirting?

Porch skirting adds curb appeal and hides the area beneath your porch or deck. Black vinyl lattice is also very popular with homeowners for porch skirting.

Porch skirting can be created from a variety of materials: lattice, wood, brick, metal, stone (or faux stone) or landscaping (such as shrubs or perennials). What you choose depends upon your budget, how much maintenance you are willing to do, the look you are trying to achieve, the architecture of your home and your DIY skills.

However, it's not as simple as putting up a piece of vinyl lattice or wood. You have to take into consideration ventilation needs and expansion and contraction. You want to be sure that you have enough air movement underneath your porch to prevent moisture from degrading your porch supports. Also you want to prevent mold from the underside of your porch flooring.

Porch skirting is helpful with preventing critters (like skunks) from taking up residence underneath your porch too. We had friends who had to evacuate their home for several days so that exterminators could remove skunks from underneath their porch.

Please refer to our porch skirting pages (links below) to get more detailed tips on choosing the right materials and installation tips.
