repairs

mary_gretherMarch 9, 2009

I have a 1997 Oakwood mobile home 14x80, I am =in a mobile home park, a very quiet neighborhood.

I know its 12 years old, now it is in need of repairs.

#1, needs the stuff put on the roof( aluminium, or wat ever the material is)

#2 need the steps repaired or replaced

#3 carpet removed, am thinking of putting those tiles on floor, the sticky kind

I am on a fixed income and these do need to be done. I can get the materials, and I guess I can get someone to do the repairs.

so what is the price of the stuff on the roof?

I just found out about carpet or tile,

as for the stairs, may have to wait on that.

And if I want the trailer moved later what are the steps to do so?

Thanks. Mary

well in some states you are not allowed to move a trailer over 10 years old..in Michigan you can't.

don't know about the roof, mine is shingles..

careful of self stick tiles..they don't stay down, esp in heat.

better to spend a couple extra $ and put down laminate.

remember your home will never appreciate in value..so don't put a lot of money in it..but keep it in good repair.

Mary go to Lowes,Home depoet and look at their cartpet in stock.It's really reasonably priced.They can install it for you as well.They also should have a list on contractors the may help with the roof and the steps as well.Or maby the park your in has a list in the office.As far as moving the home.I am not sure about any law that says you "cant".But I know for your home it's prolly about $3-$4,000.The insuance is the biggest cost.Hope this helps.
