Do You Really Need Hurricane Grade Construction at the Delaware Beaches?

The first Delaware jurisdiction has recently adopted the 2012 International Building Code, which has all sorts of changes, mostly minor and things most owners don’t really care about (except the sprinkler requirements, which most towns and counties seem to be opting out of in the state.) But the big kahuna around here is the new wind maps. Long story very short, Delaware is no longer considered at risk for a hurricane strike and the requirements for new construction have dropped dramatically. Many people are finding that prefabricated buildings may be just what they need, as one example.
