We use the following building components to build your home able to withstand hurricanes:
- Making sure your windows and doors are hurricane resistant.

- Wood or concrete for hurricane wind resistance? We will work with you and the architect to see if wood or reinforced concrete is the best choice for your home. Wood provides flexibility in high winds, which can be beneficial to a home under the stress of high winds. Reinforced concrete is a very strong, dense type of concrete that can withstand the destructive power of high winds. Whichever you choose, we will make sure these materials are used correctly to have the maximum strength against the abuse of hurricanes.
- Wind resistant roofs and roof decks. As the highest point on your home, we make sure your roof is strapped down and fastened correctly to your home. Even more specifically with roofs, the proper materials are crucial. You don't want the components of your roof failing during high winds. We will work your architect to make sure the correct design and materials are used for your hurricane home construction.
