As hurricanes continue to ravage the coastline of America, more and more homebuyers are choosing concrete masonry construction.
After a hurricane passes, weather resistance may be the most important benefit to a home buyer. In a concrete block home you and your family will enjoy increased safety and peace of mind during dangerous weather.
At the same time, your insurance rates will be lower which can add up to considerable savings. Moreover, unlike wood, block does not deteriorate in any way, further protecting the value of your investment.
The inherent strength of reinforced concrete masonry makes it an excellent choice to withstand wind-born debris – the largest threat to occupants in these storms.
