Cresco™ Insulating Skirting Panels are produced by encapsulating an expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam core in cellular concrete. Cellular concrete is aerated concrete created by introducing tiny air pockets in concrete. There are two panel sizes available: 73.5" long by 12.25" tall and 2" thick (about 23 lb) and 24" long by 24" tall and 2" thick (about 15 lb).

The four available textures are plain, round rock, small stone and skip trowel stucco:

The benefits of these panels include:

  • Enhanced home appearance by covering the unsightly area beneath your mobile or manufactured home or bare concrete foundation with an attractive finish
  • Improved energy efficiency with an insulating value of R-8
  • Cut and shape easily with a hand or power saw to accommodate vents and access doors
  • Can easily be screwed or nailed to wood or metal studs
  • The absence of border trim, and the randomly orientated textures offered, means cutting and combining panels can create a seamless look
  • Meets FHA/ HUD requirements as a Permanent Foundation Perimeter Skirt Wall
  • Permanent skirting that outlasts vinyl and wood options
  • Cellular concrete face resists fire, rain, wind and weed wackers
  • Installed after a home is set enabling the replacement of existing skirting
  • Accommodates bay windows, bump outs and other deviations to an otherwise straight wall profile
  • Durable, low cost, insulating, exterior wall cladding
  • EIFS replacement
  • Create interior walls with eye catching texture

The insulating EPS foam core is 1 1/2" thick and is surrounded on four sides and one face by thick fiber reinforced cellular concrete for added strength and durability. The EPS on the back side is exposed but can be finished with stucco or paint or simply left as is.

Depending on the substrate, panels are adhered with construction adhesive, mortar, or suitable fasteners. They can be painted, stained or plastered to achieve the desired look and color.
