If you’re building a custom home in Florida, you want the best of the best. You’re looking for a home that is high quality, and will be a source of comfort and enjoyment for years to come. As builders of custom homes in Florida, we know quality and we understand building things that last. We recommend concrete walls for your custom home for many reasons.
Concrete Walls for your Custom Home in Florida
Concrete walls have been vigorously tested for their strength. If you live in an area with high winds and extreme weather, you’ll be interested to know that test results from studies performed at the Wind Engineering Research Center of Texas Tech University revealed that solid concrete walls have the best chance of effectively protecting your home from flying debris during hurricanes. Solid concrete walls are stronger and more wind resistant than hollow concrete block homes, and will stand the test of weather and time.
Concrete walls are energy efficient, especially when compared with other wall systems. This is because they absorb heat during the day and release it at night. Not only does this naturally protect your custom home in Florida, but it allows your air conditioning equipment to take on less of the work when it comes to cooling your environment.
Did you know that concrete walls are fire resistant? It’s true! Solid concrete walls will resist fire better than wood, Sheetrock, or even steel. In fact, tests show that even at extreme temperatures, concrete walls will contain the fire and resist structural damage. You can protect yourself, your home, and your family by choosing solid concrete walls.
Concrete walls protect your home against pests. More specifically, termites. Termites love the hot weather in Florida, and will invade wooden homes.
You will not need to worry about the busy noises of your surrounding neighborhood with solid concrete walls. Concrete is noise resistant and will allow you to maintain your environment without interference from the outside world.
Concrete stands the test of time. Not only will it maintain its structure and withstand natural erosion better than other building materials, but choosing concrete will actually increase the resale value of your home. When you choose concrete, you’re investing in the future of your home.
We know what it takes to make a home stand strong and last long. Solid concrete walls are our best way to ensure that you get the most out of your home for years to come.
