Deltec homes have proven to be hurricane-proof. According to the company, it has never lost any of its 5000+ in just under 50 years. The houses have withstood some of the worst storms, like Hurricane Katrina, with minimal damage.

The circular shape of the home inhibits a build-up of pressure on any part of the structure. Wind flows around the home rather than against it the way it would on a more traditional rectangular or square house. The company also credits its materials, engineering and structural connections as part of the reason the homes have lasted through multiple hurricanes.

An added bonus to buying a Deltec house is that it's built with sustainable materials and uses solar power to assist with heating and cooling the home.
