IN MIDDLE AMERICA, FLOODS BEGIN AS WEATHER AND END AS HEARTBREAK. Within days, a storm can overwhelm sewers, streams and levees, pushing fouled water into home after home after home. Nationwide, windstorms and flooding are by far the greatest threats to the family home, and homes comprise more than 90% of weather-damaged buildings. In response, CATEGORY-5 PARTNERS has created a tough and good looking STORM DEFENSE HOUSE designed for the very worst conditions. The structure is available for construction at reasonable cost anywhere in Texas and the South. [Click HERE to see design images]
THE CATEGORY-5 STORM DEFENSE HOUSE™ offers construction based on an agenda of elevation, strength and durability, and adapted to the very worst potential weather. Reflecting the lessons of Hurricane Harvey and other storms, it is rated for 60”+ of water and 157+ mph winds, with living areas wrapped in a hardened, non-organic and non-corroding shell. The CATEGORY-5 is not a band-aid or experiment, it’s a resilient and good-looking solution developed over a dozen years, in three states, and in locations both urban and rural.
LIKE ONE OF THE FAMOUS SEARS COMPANY HOMES of 1908-1940, a CATEGORY-5 arrives at the building site as a ready-to-build system. Finish items or those based on owner preferences - like cabinets and fixtures - are locally sourced. Houston-based CATEGORY-5 PARTNERS coordinates the building shell and stands behind the finish phases of each STORM DEFENSE HOUSE. Build high, build strong!
