CAPpings - Corrosion annoys Coastal Homeowner

Corrosion annoys Coastal Homeowner - the coastal environment offered peace, serenity and a place to get away from it all - until corrosion, wind and water created a nightmare in vacation homeownership 




OWNING A home on the coast shouldn't be a lesson in dreams gone wrong.

For Wayne Higson, the coastal environment offered peace, serenity and a place to get away from it all - until corrosion, wind and water created a nightmare in vacation homeownership.

"People don't really know how bad things can get until they own a home in this type of environment," Higson said. "You realize there's no Yellow Brick Road to follow to get help."

Higson, 58, of Greenville, N.C., built his dream vacation home in Emerald Isle, N.C., and soon realized the standard construction materials were not faring well in the weather.

He got tired of replacing exterior lighting every few months, and major costs kept creeping up, including repairing the corroded air-conditioning unit.
