Climate change is a reality we can no longer ignore, and its effects are felt most acutely in vulnerable regions like Hawaii. Rising sea levels, more frequent storms, and increased humidity are challenges that the homebuilding industry must address. Castleblock is at the forefront of this, building homes that are not just beautiful and sustainable but also resilient. This article explores how.
The Challenges of Climate Change in Hawaii
Hawaii faces unique challenges when it comes to climate change:
Rising Sea Levels
Being an island state, Hawaii is particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels, which threaten coastal properties.
Increased Storm Frequency
Climate change leads to more frequent and severe storms, requiring homes that can withstand extreme weather conditions.
Humidity and Heat
Increased temperatures and humidity levels require homes to be more energy-efficient to keep cooling costs down.
