Hurricane Resistant Homes Save Lives During Hurricanes in Coastal Areas

Deltec Homes Hurricane Resistant Homes Withstand Hurricane High Winds

ASHEVILLE, N.C.--()--Deltec Homes hurricane resistant homes provide people who choose to live near coastal areas a safe round home from high winds and water versus traditionally built homes. As of June 2, 2009, the forecasters from Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University anticipate a slightly below average probability of United States and Caribbean major hurricane landfall.

“In four decades, we have never lost a Deltec Home to a hurricane. Our homeowners continue to tell their own real life stories of their hurricane resistant homes so others may realize the hurricane resistant home benefits of owning a Deltec Home” said Joseph Schlenk Marketing/Sales Director of Deltec Homes.

Peter Levin lives in Miami, FL. His home, a Deltec round home, survived Hurricane Andrew, a category 5 storm which destroyed areas in south Florida. “The eye of Andrew passed over our home,” he said. “All we lost were a few shingles.

A few years later, Levin's hurricane resistant home endured Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma in the same year. Homes around them were destroyed, but their Deltec hurricane resistant round home was undamaged. He knows why. “It stood because of the round shape. The wind has no place to hit it, so it just goes around. It's a natural shape,” he explained.

Three major hurricanes and a half dozen tropical storms haven't fazed Palmer Dent's Deltec round home, built in 2000 on the bayside of Gulf Shores, AL. “Our home is 16' above ground, and during Katrina we had about 10 ½ ' of water underneath it. We lost three shingles; that was it,” he said.

After spending decades in the insurance business, 20 years in claims, Dent knew he wanted a wind resistant retirement home. He conducted extensive research looking at several round homes and decided on a Deltec home.

“I'm convinced based on my years of insurance claim expertise that Deltec has the best hurricane resistant homes on the market. It's the way they are engineered, built, and the way they are tied down,” said Dent.
