Hurricane Michael recently tore through the Florida Golf Coast, leaving a path of destruction in its wake.

Unfortunately, Michael is just one of many storms to slam the nation’s coasts in 2018, and experts are expecting more by year’s end.

As more of these catastrophic storms terrorize our nation, homeowners in storm prone areas are looking for new ways to keep their families and homes safe.

According to an article written by Christina Scolar for CNBC, Brooklyn-based SG Blocks is leading a new wave of construction to withstand these storms: steel housing.

Last year, SG Blocks became the first company to receive an ESR number for a recycled material to be approved for construction. Since then, the company has been using steel containers as a primary building tool, crafting and delivering homes in approximately 90 days, according to Scolar’s reporting.
