Some good siding options for manufactured homes include vinyl and fiber cement. Some manufactured and mobile homes also have wood or cedar shingles as siding, though it isn't quite as common.
Vinyl siding is one of the top siding choices for manufactured homes. It is an affordable option, is easy to install, and comes in insulated or non-insulated forms. The insulated vinyl siding costs more, but is a good return on investment because it helps reduce energy used for heating and cooling. Fiber cement comes in different thicknesses and styles. It can mimic just about any other surface, including wood siding. It is also possible to use wood or cedar siding around the entire home or just for trim and accents.
