Be advised, this is a major excavation and significant skill, labor and machinery is required to complete the job, even though it can be completed in as little as 2 hours but it is a big job that creates a big hole and lots of dirt.
Safe Rooms can be installed usually within an hour or less.
During periods of heightened demand, you may experience delays in getting your storm shelter or safe room, however we will do everything we can to get your shelter or safe room installed for you as soon as we possibly can. Orders are placed and shelters /safe rooms are installed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Once your storm shelter or safe room has been delivered to our Huntsville facility, at that time we will contact you to schedule your storm shelter or safe room install.
Also be advised that weather conditions can potentially dramatically affect and impact install time frames for underground storm shelters even days after a heavy rain
(When we're digging 6-8 feet below the surface, it can take a few days for that rain to filter through, worse in colder months; we do our best to ensure the least impact to your yard and property but it is a major excavation and we are moving a lot of dirt)
- Good rule of thumb for sizing how large a unit you need is 5sq ft per person, ie, 4x8 = 32sq ft, good for about 6-7 adults; 3x5 = 15sq ft, good for about 3 adults (standing) per FEMA guidelines
- Deluxe Models include thicker steel (1/4" vs 3/16" on walls & ceiling; door always 1/4" thick) AND 3 Medeco Deadbolts (vs 1 Medeco keyed-deadbolt and 2 3/4" slider pins on standard model)
- 3 Medeco deadbolts also now available as option on Standard Model (just add $250)
- Bench option available for $350 OR Gunsafe Safe-room option for $750 upgrade
- Exterior Model for installation outdoors in the elements with gable roof $700 upgrade (assumes compatible existing slab; forming/pouring of new concrete slab not included in price)

4x10: $6,400 Installed 5x8: $6,450 Installed 6x8: $7,200 Installed
NOTE: We can custom-build any safe room size, but the quickest safe rooms to be built/delivered/installed are 3x5, 4x6, 4x8 standard units; adding a bench or gun safe to a safe room or any other custom feature may dramatically increase the time it takes to build and ship a safe room due to the manufacturer's setup at this time, which is outside of our control.

Note: We have an underground storm shelter model for installation under your existing garage floor called Lifeguard; however if you have concerns about potentially dangerous and life threatening carbon monoxide poisoning (from vehicle exhaust, broken gas lines, malfunctioning gas water heaters, etc), or being trapped under debris, you may also want to consider a tornado safe room like our All Weather Safe Room (see options in Safe Room section above)
Ex: $3900 Lifesaver (LS-4) Ex: $5,750 All Weather Safe Room (4'x8') +$300 shipping (within 100 miles of Hsv) +$300 shipping (within 65 miles) = $4200 TOTAL +$750 Built-in Gun-Safe Option +$1000 Deluxe Model Option = $7800 TOTAL
