CAT-5 HURRICANE RATED HOMES

CAT-5 hurricane rated homes in North Carolina

We build CAT-5 hurricane rated homes in North Carolina. A Category 5 hurricane is a tropical cyclone that reaches the highest intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale with sustained winds of at least 157 miles per hour, within the Atlantic Ocean and to the north of the equator. Hurricane Katrina (2005) was a Category 5 storm.

D. Schaap & Associates, in conjunction with a leading East Coast Manufacturer, has designed a 4-bedroom 2,400 SF CAT-5 hurricane home capable of withstanding over 175 mile per hour sustained winds.

Construction costs are slightly more expensive than standard wood frame construction, but the end result is a home that is beautiful, functional, and structurally extremely superior.

CAT-5 Hurricane Rated Homes Benefits

CAT-5 hurricane homes, engineered to withstand the devastating forces of Category 5 hurricanes, offer unparalleled safety and peace of mind for homeowners in hurricane-prone regions. One of the most significant benefits of these homes is their exceptional structural integrity and resilience against extreme weather conditions. Constructed using reinforced concrete, steel frames, impact-resistant windows, and other fortified materials, CAT-5 hurricane homes are designed to withstand high winds, flying debris, and storm surges, minimizing the risk of catastrophic damage during hurricanes.

These homes often feature elevated foundations or pilings to mitigate the risk of flooding, further enhancing their ability to withstand hurricanes and storm-related flooding. Beyond their superior safety features, CAT-5 hurricane homes offer long-term cost savings by reducing the need for costly repairs and insurance premiums associated with hurricane damage. Moreover, the peace of mind that comes with knowing one’s home can withstand the worst that nature has to offer is invaluable for homeowners living in hurricane-prone areas. CAT-5 hurricane homes provide a secure and resilient housing option that offers unmatched protection and safety in the face of extreme weather events.
