Park Home Maintenance – Exterior Finishes

exterior of a park home, park home maintenance

All properties require regular maintenance and park homes are no different. Indeed, being detached you will have four walls to take care of! It is really important to look after the exterior of your home. Generally speaking, homes with a textured finish will need to be re-textured every 3 years although this may vary by manufacturer. Because park homes are built of timber they are designed to flex, unlike bricks and mortar properties, it is therefore essential that the correct material is used when re-texturing the home. Ordinary paint will not suffice as it is likely to crack and peel within a short space of time.

The industry in the main uses products from ‘Resitex’; they are the leading manufacturer of thermoplastic park home coatings in the UK. Resitex is specially formulated to create a flexible, tough, decorative and breathable barrier between the structure of your home and the elements.
