Program Excerpts: Mobile Home Improvements with Tim Peele

Porch Roof Options

"The Duralok is an insulated panel that comes in either a 3" or 4" thick, the 3" being the most popular as it is less expensive and may not need the added insulation, the panels themselves come in 4x8' sheets and then they just have to be interlocked together to make one seamless roof."


Screen Room Options

"If someone just wanted to go with a screen room, we have a permanent screen room option where you buy the kit and roof and the wall panels come with the screen already attached making it a pretty quick setup. We also have a portable screen option for those with RVs or those who need to remove it for winter."


Shutter Options

"We have a pretty big selection of shutters and are customized. We have board and batten, a shaker style, louvered and raised panel, some of which you can mix and match."


Interior Improvement Ideas

"The bath products like showers and tubs are if not one but perhaps the biggest sellers we have. You can't just go down to Lowes or Home Depot and just buy a tub for a mobile home.

Most mobile home tubs are 54 inches which are a little smaller than traditional residential homes."
