How to Cut Costs on a Mobile Home Remodel


Mobile home remodeling projects must be handled carefully in order to prevent spending way too much and going over the value of the home itself. There are ways to cut costs on a mobile home remodel, while at the same time producing quality results.

  • Look at the roof of a mobile home. Some roofs are made out of metal. Over years of weather exposure, this metal may rust and start leaking. Instead of replacing the metal, you may purchase a liquid sealant that rolls onto the existing roof. The sealant bonds to the metal and keeps it waterproof. Sealant comes in white or silver colors which reflect heat.

  • Cut costs on a mobile home remodel when you work on interior walls. In older mobile homes, the interior walls are normally thin plywood panels. These panels are stained and make rooms look dark. You may purchase new panels that have vinyl patterns which make the room lighter. The lighter the panels, the bigger the room looks. This saves the costs of sheetrock and paint.

  • Consider door replacements when you remodel a mobile home. To cut costs in this area, you must go to a mobile home supply company because doors in a mobile home are not the same as doors in a regular house. If you order doors from a building materials company, it usually costs twice as much as going through a mobile home supply company.

  • Replace the fixtures (such as plumbing fixtures) and cut costs on a mobile home remodel in this area. Plumbing fixtures have a wide range of pricing. Let's consider a tub and shower area. Instead of doing ceramic surrounds for a shower area, you may purchase fiber glass pre-made surround panels. Fiber glass saves both time and money.
