If you're the proud owner of a manufactured home, like the beautiful ones built by Bayshore Homes in our welcoming communities, you know it's more than just a house—it's your sanctuary. 

Keeping your manufactured home in tip-top shape is a sure way to live comfortably and protect your investment. 

Here's how to keep your manufactured home looking great and functioning perfectly for years to come!

Your 8-Step Manufactured Home Maintenance Checklist

1. Regular Inspections: Your First Line of Defense

Just like any home, your manufactured house needs regular check-ups. Look out for any signs of wear and tear, especially after bad weather. Keep an eye out for leaks, cracks, or any other damage. Early detection can save you a lot of hassle and money in the long run.

2. Roof Maintenance: Your Home’s Umbrella

Your roof shields your home from the elements, so give it the attention it deserves. Clean off debris, check for loose shingles, and de-leaf those gutters! 
A well-maintained roof can significantly extend the life of your home.

3. Skirting Maintenance: More Than Just Looks

The skirting on your manufactured home isn't just for looks; it plays a crucial role in protecting the underside from critters and harsh weather. 
Inspect it regularly for any gaps or damage, and make sure it's well-ventilated to prevent moisture buildup.

4. Breathe Easy with Proper Ventilation

Good ventilation is key to preventing moisture-related problems like mold. Make sure your home is well-ventilated, with exhaust fans in high-moisture areas like the kitchen and bathroom.

5. Plumbing Care: Keep the Flow Going

To avoid plumbing nightmares, make sure to insulate your pipes to prevent them from freezing in colder months. 
Regular checks for leaks can also prevent water damage and save on water bills. It takes five minutes to check, and it’s well worth the time.

6. Exterior Care: First Impressions Count

Keep the exterior of your home looking fresh and inviting. Wash the siding, repaint as needed, and fix any damages promptly. This improves curb appeal and adds an extra layer of protection to your home.

7. Love Your Interiors

Inside your home, keep an eye on the condition of your floors, walls, and ceilings. Address any issues like peeling wallpaper or loose tiles to keep everything looking neat and tidy.

8. Green Thumb, Happy Home

Don't forget about the space around your home! A well-kept lawn, some attractive landscaping, and a tidy outdoor area make your home more enjoyable and contribute to the overall appeal of your manufactured home community.

Your Home, Your Pride

Remember, regular maintenance of your manufactured home is key to a comfortable, safe, and happy living environment. 
By following these simple tips, you’ll ensure that your home remains a source of pride and joy for many years to come.
