Mobile Home Step
At times one may decide to settle in a home that is more cheaper so that they can save enough to buy a better home. When living in a mobile home, one pays little rent if it is rented or nothing if it is theirs and they can settle in any place they want with the house. To make them mobile, they are built from cabins having wheels and one builds stairs to make movement in and out easier. Being a bit raised makes the need for steps essential to help one easily climb and get some heavy items on board. In most cases they are made up of few steps and a railing which one holds onto for support while climbing.
Basically, they are made from such components like ramps, stringers, treads, and other parts. Length and height of the stairs can be variable depending on the owner’s choice but there are standards for these measurements. One can choose a material to make the steps considering how long they think the steps will be used and their costs too. The nature of wood is readily available and also cheap to acquire makes it a good material to use to make the steps.
There is a wide variety of wood to choose from because there are many hardwoods that produce quality wood for building. To make the wood last longer and withstand adverse weather conditions such as rain and sun, it is treated with special additives. There are also steps made from fiberglass and these are better because they are more durable and affordable too. Such conditions as chemicals, friction and weather conditions like rain and others have no much effect on fiberglass.
It is also a lightweight material and it requires minimum or no maintenance at all while lasting for significantly long periods. A person may also opt to have steps built using metal because it is easily available, durable and not expensive. Metal is resistant to most conditions and can be coated with some coats to improve durability and rust resistance.
For steps that need to stay for longer periods, concrete can be used to build such steps. People with some knowledge in construction can build their own steps through online tools that give instructions and requirements for building. It is also possible to buy steps that are already built and one can choose the ones they like made from any material. There are specially designed ramps for those with disabilities or using wheelchairs.
