PATH - A Public Private Partnership for Advancing Housing Technology

Unrisky Business

"When Mother Nature's wrath strikes Florida again...

...citizens may not have enough revenue to cover losses and our property owners will take an enormous hit in their pocketbooks through additional taxes on their insurance policies."
--Barney Bishop, President and CEO, Associated Industries of Florida

When it comes to dealing with disasters in the home, preventative measures go a long way. Houses built with PATH- profiled technologies are better equipped to withstand moisture, keep out mold, and stand up to some of the toughest storms. They're a sound investment for homeowners and insurers alike.
