Dalton Brothers, Inc. continues to build and remodel beach homes and condos on the gulf coast. We remember well the impact and damages to gulf front structures in the aftermath of Hurricanes Eloise and Opal.
As the community began to rebuild, building codes needed to
be updated to meet new higher standards in coastal wind ratings. The
state looked to Dalton Brothers, Inc.'s methods of home building to
improve these codes, and performed a Case Study on one of our
homes. This Case Study defined and set guidelines for our entire
state's residential building codes.
Florida's Case Study and Findings)
Inc. has and
continues to encourage our clients to take extra measures above code
to ensure the best outcome should their home take a direct hit from a hurricane.
Inc. built the Holden home that sustained a direct hit from hurricane Ivan with no significant damage to the beach house. Our team also built the Dune Maus House and Loud Dunes to the same higher building standards with no damage from Ivan.
The Olstein Beach House also survived Ivan, while homes on either side were badly damaged.
Please contact Dalton Brothers, Inc. to discuss how to improve your existing waterfront structure or build a structurally sound home to increase the outcome of
surviving the next direct hit of a hurricane better than your neighbor!
