Hurricane season starts every year on June 1st and ends on November 30th. During this time period hurricanes are likely to develop in both the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Atlantic. Due to the location of Cape Coral, FL we have the potential to be impacted by hurricanes that develop in either one of these bodies of water.
If you are considering building a new home in the Cape Coral, FL area then you need to work with a builder that is knowledgeable on how to make your home hurricane resistant. Don Salyers Masonry & General Contractors, LLC has experience in designing and building hurricane resistant homes. There are several different components that will make your home more hurricane resistant such as:
•Exceeding engineering for footing and wall reinforcing than what code requires.
•Steel is placed from the footing up through the block walls and into tie-beam. Then we anchor the tie-beam to the truss with hurricane straps.
•Installing high impact windows and doors that can withstand higher winds and debris.
•Using more and larger steel rebars than required.
