Topsider Hurricane Homes

Hurricane and Storm Resistant Homes Built to Last Since 1968

Topsider Homes have withstood many of the most devastating hurricanes, including direct hits from hurricanes Ian and Irma in the Virgin Islands and Florida Keys, Ian, Dorian and Andrew in the Bahamas and Florida, Hugo, Ivan, Katrina and Rita along the Gulf Coast. Each Topsider Home is custom designed and engineered to withstand high winds and to meet building codes in all coastal and hurricane-prone areas. Topsider's record of storm safety and survival over the decades is unmatched.

"After my home was destroyed by a hurricane, I said I would never build another home at the beach front unless it was hurricane proof. A friend told me about Topsider Homes, and after doing the research I decided it was the perfect fit. My Topsider has been through numerous major storms and hurricanes and each time has come through in one piece."

Pedestal, Stilt & Piling Houses Naturally Resistant to High Winds and Storm Surge

Topsider Homes' storm and hurricane-resistant features are the result of a unique blend of modern engineering and state-of-the-art building technology, combined with a time-proven post & beam building system.

"While the destruction on the island [Green Turtle Cay] was devastating to most of the home owners [after Hurricane Dorian], the four [Topsider] houses came through basically unscathed… bottom line, after 45 years and countless hurricanes the [Topsiders] are still standing strong. This is a testament to the quality of the home you build. We will always be a believer in the Topsider design and quality."

- Paul and Karen H., Abaco, Bahamas See Right

 

 

 

This combination creates houses that are structural battleships, resistant to tropical storms, hurricane force winds and storm surge. And because our pedestal, stilt and piling homes for beach front and coastal areas are elevated and often multi-sided in design, storm and hurricane winds flow around, over and under them with far less damage-causing wind resistance than with conventional houses.
