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.
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.
Beach front & Coastal Area Houses - Custom Designed and Engineered to Withstand Hurricanes and Meet Local Building Codes
Topsider's in-house design staff and consulting engineers have been designing and specifying beach front and coastal area homes for decades, and are knowledgeable of ever-changing building code requirements from Florida to Hawaii. We are highly experienced working with local building officials and various agencies, including coastal commissions, FEMA, the US Army Corp of Engineers, Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) authorities, and various state agencies, such as Florida's Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).
Proper specifications are the key to building a beach front or coastal home that is potentially storm proof and hurricane proof.
