Question

Deck-to-Mobile Home Skirting Fix


A deck was built for the home where I live before I got here, and it seems that there was a lack of care with respect to the corner where the deck and house skirting meet.

The result of this is that there is inadequate coverage in that corner--and we have had to catch and release upwards of 20 skunks (we're in AZ).

Now, after I catch the one I'm about to catch, I do not want to have to do this again, so what is it that is normally done under such circumstances?

Thanks

Maybe just chicken wire fencing attached inside to close the gap, .

A pic or two would give us a better idea of just what you have and need to do but as Neal said - the opening needs to be closed. Wire, wood, more underpinning - what would work best is hard to say without seeing.
