Creating an Oceanfront Fortress

Homeownership has become increasingly attractive to individuals and families in the last two years, especially for first-time homebuyers who reap the most benefits. The pandemic led to a shift in mindset and the desire to stop flushing money down the drain on rent – only to be fueled by historically low mortgage rates. And now, as the housing supply gap expands and bidding wars continue to take their toll on aspiring homeowners, new home builds have become the silver lining in a chaotic market. There were 1.6 million housing starts in 2021 alone.

Yet, not all aspiring homeowners achieve their dream home. Instead, they get confronted with an increased price in materials and supply chain issues, which is why it’s so important to have a seasoned, reliable building and construction company when you want to invest in a custom home.

Here are just a few ways Monetti achieves award-winning, competitively-priced, top-quality custom homes without letting down our clients.

Safety First

Building a coastal paradise can be tricky due to unpredictable weather. That’s why Monetti maximizes both style and strength in every new build – to ensure the safety of the client and protect their investment. Using corrosion-resistant hardware, impact-resistant windows and doors, insulation, expansion joints, and structural beams that will support a coastal property without creating an eyesore are just a few ways the team achieves this.

Embracing the Elements

When you’re building in a vulnerable environment, you need an expert team of craftsmen at your disposal. Your new build will face an ongoing war with the elements, and your building company is your best line of defense. On the New Jersey Coastline, this includes contractors who specialize in stonework and rebar work. Take a look at how this custom home relies heavily on natural stone to create a luxurious fortress.

Quality of Life

You might think that inclement weather limits homeowners on what they can expect from their exterior spaces, but that’s not the case with the right build team. Monetti specializes in delivering premium outdoor spaces with all the bells and whistles.

For example, inadequately built porches can lead to improper drainage and accelerate deterioration. By utilizing things like a reinforced roof system, an underlayment, or pressure-treated lumber, Monetti helps shield your home from mother nature.

The Golden Standard

Since coastal properties rely heavily on natural building materials on the exterior, carrying the same look and feel indoors is often on the wish list for luxury homeowners. And if you’re like most people who live at the beach, you’ll want to keep your windows and doors open as often as possible – which could expose your home to saltwater and corrosion.

It’s important to use durable, high-quality materials on the interior of your home to guarantee a long life span. Consider including custom built-ins, exotic hardwood floors, stone accent walls, or concrete countertops.

This is where a full-service custom home builder will really come in handy. You might find a long list of builders who can give you that brick siding you want, but can they achieve the golden standard on the inside too?
