Are You At Risk For Tornadoes?

Most people don’t realize it, but more than half the country resides in a Zone III or higher tornado risk zone. Zone III indicates risks of 200mph winds or higher.

Not having a basement or interior rooms leaves little in the way of safe places to during severe storms or tornadoes. That’s why we love our in-ground storm shelters. These shelters offer maximum protection and are easily accessible. Most units can be installed in one day in your garage, giving you peace of mind when the weather gets severe.
