Water damage is a killer in mobile homes,

This is why any water damage – a water heater leak, a flooded toilet or a spilled water dish can cause weak or soft spots in the floor.

You cant fix the particle board once its been damaged. It becomes soggy, like a cardboard box, when it gets wet. While you cant undo this damage, you can get rid of the problem by laying down a new floor, one thats sturdier than the old one and certain to stand up to water and other damage.

The piece-by-piece option is time-consuming and difficult to do correctly.
Tools You Will Need:
Claw hammer
Tape measure
Jigsaw or circular saw
Safety glasses (catching a wood chip in the eye isnt fun)
A pencil for marking your cuts in the new flooring
Straight-edge (usually a carpenters square or a construction level)

Duration : 0:6:19

    . Judging by the space between the support beams in your video either the beams in my trailer are further apart or they are no longer attached near the door. I plan on moving out of this place within the year either moving into a new trailer on the same lot or buying a house. I figure worse case scenario I could always get a couple floor jacks and prop it back up.

    While insulation in …
    While insulation in flooring is nice, most houses don’t have it, nor do most houses have soft spots in their flooring and insulation in the floor is inviting for insects and mammals as well, most lieky the floor is soft from the roof leaking down into the walls and under the flooring, over the years it can eat out the wall studs as well, all while the owner is clueless it’s going on.

    Reminded me of my POS trailer. I had to tear the sub floor out in it and it looked like the nightmare before Christmas popped out of there. I had never seen so many spiders, rats, bugs, and in my life, and I have been in thousands of crawl spaces; so that says something.

    From what I could …
    From what I could tell, it looked like a good video, However, The camera work needs to be worked on. Most of the time your camera is moving so fast it doesn’t have time to focus, much less give the viewer a chance to see what your trying to show them, So slow don with the camera, make nice slow movements,and let the camera do the work. You can shoot longer scenes and edit them together and possibly do a voice over in editing if you want to ty something like that

    Just some ideas,
    Ken
