Macomber discusses how to use the right materials and connections to protect a home from wind damage. “Pound for pound, wood is stronger than steel and concrete, and it’s flexible,” says Macomber. “When homes are built with wood-framed construction, they can easily meet or exceed all of the wind-code requirements in the Florida building code.”
