StormTuff Advantage

In 2012 hurricane Sandy caused over $65 billion in damages to coastal communities and affected over 650,000 homes. Recently the Atlantic Coast has seen an increase in hurricanes and severe weather and while there is no such thing as a storm proof home, structures built with superior materials and techniques have a better chance of survival because they are built with a greater resistance to the elements.

Building in coastal Delmarva and the Chesapeake Bay region for more than 30 years, Resort Custom Homes, LLC founder, Mark Grahne, utilized his Mechanical Engineering degree and construction expertise to develop “StormTuff®”. This building technique is the cornerstone of every home the company builds. Resort Custom Homes, LLC was specifically founded to address major safety components of new home construction, many of which are overlooked in the mid-Atlantic region.

Energy efficiency of new homes continues to be important and is the primary focus of many coastal builders. Current home building codes in Delaware require a high level of energy efficiency. Many builders are asking homebuyers to spend thousands of dollars more for energy efficient homes, but many owners discover they are only saving a few dollars a month on utility bills. It makes better sense to put these dollars where they matter the most– not only into efficiency, but also into the safety and security of the home that houses your family.

Resort Custom Homes, LLC will provide you with an energy efficient home along with the peace of mind that your home is built to last. What’s more, we are a true custom builder and will carry out your new home plans, or ours, as you desire.
