Steel homes are quicker, easier and cheaper to build than conventional stick-built homes. But they’re also more durable and virtually maintenance-free. While there are many steel home builders across Florida and the U.S., Steel X Homes stands out in the crowd.
In addition to their Net Zero home solutions, Steel X also offers the one thing that every Floridian needs: a hurricane-proof home.
X Homes are designed to be unprecedented. Strong and durable, the XF series of homes focus on the future. Modern steel homes are strong, but very few are XF series strong. The company aims to refine homes in a few ways:
Homes of today shouldn’t be reliant on the power grid to keep the home functioning properly. Net zero homes produce more, or enough, electricity throughout the year to power the home. In the event of a natural disaster or a blackout, these homes will remain a safe haven for their occupants.
Achieving net zero is done through:
X Homes offers net zero buildings that save 50% to 70% of energy. If conditions are not ideal for producing energy using solar, the grid will offer the energy required to operate the structure.
X Homes uses galvanized stainless steel, never compromises on quality and makes the structure hurricane proof. On top of this, the structure is insect and rot proof, resistant to mold and fires and even earthquake-proof.
Advanced steel construction is used in all homes to:
But precision doesn’t mean the speed of construction is slow. Structures, including interior and exterior walls, trusses and foundation, are constructed quickly. A zero steel waste design is in place, along with cost-efficient construction and an environmentally friendly design.
Steel X Homes use Ferro cement due to the material’s high durability, waterproof properties and crack resistant materials. The cement is unrivaled when it comes to natural disaster resistance.
The structures are both earthquake and hurricane proof.
Ferro cement provides a strong vapor barrier, and it’s fireproof and waterproof.
Energy efficiency is the cornerstone of the X Homes methodology. The large designer windows are energy efficient, low E-rated and use dual-pane impact glass.
Flashing uses a completely waterproof solution, with a secure and safe installation. Insulation is energy efficient, offers great sound blocking, protects against allergens and pollen, prevents mildew and mold, and doesn’t break, bunch or sag.
The HVAC system is entirely ductless, offers multi-zone control and eliminates pollutants, dust and other allergens. On top of this, your home also comes with a monitoring system that you can tap into right on your smartphone.
Monitoring allows complete management of your home and provides insights into:
The home’s hybrid design also includes a unique home water heater that’s efficient, manageable via a smartphone and can even be set on vacation or away mode.
The Future X homes include advanced LED lighting, and cabinets are Italian-inspired and handmade in the United States. Cabinets are resistant to wear, fading, scratches, abrasions, high temperatures, water and moisture.
Automation is integral in the home’s design, with an in-home system that offers remote lock management, information reports, lighting control and even home security.
