I own a mobile home and I've noticed that the siding on one side seems to have slipped down a bit. Does anyone know if this means my home needs leveling? My doors all close fine. Does this happen in 'normal' homes?
Victor is correct. The siding can quite simply be re-attached unless it is damaged. Even at that, it isn't a major job. To check your levelling, just use a ball or marble or actual level and place it on some floor where there is a lino, laminate or wood surface. If it rolls to one side, you'll know that the level is off. If it is just a slight roll. and you don't mind ... or really notice it, I'd leave it. (not a major issue)
Also, look at your front door from the outside looking in. The door frame should show relatively equal space between the door and the frame around the entire door. (Especially at the top) If this space is not equal and the door binds, then consider re-levelling.
Back to the siding. If it just came un-attached, you could simple push it back in place. It should snapin place. The bottom of the higher sheet should snap into thee top of the sheet below.
Thanks very much for the responses! I'm breathing a little easier now. :)
