Monolithic Concrete Construction

CATEGORY FIVE HOMES are built with the strength and durability of monolithic concrete. Our structures are built as a single uniform unit, using rebar reinforcement to give it greater structural strength. The comprehensive strength of poured concrete walls is several times that of block walls, and by integrating insulation into the poured concrete, it creates a structure with a higher R-value for energy savings. It also creates an airtight seal between the two materials.

In various strength tests, concrete proved two to four times stronger than the maximum wind load and five to nine times stronger than the maximum earthquake load - bending strength considerably greater than the standards required by the Uniform Building Code.

In countless firewall tests, concrete has proven itself as one of the most fire and heat-resistant construction materials. Unlike wood or steel, concrete does not burn, soften, or bend. Concrete structures are most likely to remain standing through a fire, not susceptible to damage by insects and termites that can cost thousand of dollars to treat or repair, and of course, not susceptible to wood rot.

Our monolithic concrete building process is priced competitively as compared with the traditional wood building process – but offers many added benefits. Maintenance and upkeep are virtually nonexistent with concrete homes and will offer homeowners longevity and substantial savings over time. Our construction process can be applied to most any architectural design, giving homeowners and builders the flexibility to build most any floor plan or roofing style desired. Our building system will allow builders to choose many different exterior finishes for facades and roofs to conform to local design standards. Stucco, brick, or stone, as well as other siding materials, and slate, tile, or metal as well as other roof finishes can be applied.


CATEGORY FIVE HOMES are built to withstand most weather related conditions with minimal damage, including hurricane force winds, providing a "safe haven" during storms where evacuation is not mandatory. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is now promoting the concept of building "Shelters-In-Place", in areas where evacuation is not mandatory and the home is built to weather the storm. Homebuilders are currently promoting the construction of integrated safe rooms in homes, creating one small area of safety. CATEGORY FIVE HOMES is building the entire home to exceed even those specifications, making anywhere in the home safe during most storms. CATEGORY FIVE HOMES become a sanctuary in these situations, with separate integrated power generation and water purification in the event of local outages.
