    I've seen a trailer that used concrete blocks for skirting and they painted the blocks with the same color as their shutters. It was very cute and the blocks can be moved easily, are very strong, last a long time and block the wind.

    It probably depends on the style/ color you want and your budget.

    I have a professionally installed oak hardwood about two years old that match the rest of the 1970s home. Between us and our #70 pound dog it’s getting scratched and damaged. It needs a lot of care. If I had to do it again ( we have had 6 different homes) I would want ceramic or porcelain tile. Now they make tiles that look like wood too!
