So if you aren’t sure about what a tornado shelter installation entails, or what it will look like, check this out:

Here is the exact email text she sent us with the video:

The install went great, we are extremely pleased by the customer service of both you and your crew.  For fun, I made a time-lapse video of the day and thought I’d share it with you. I’m also going to share it on Facebook to let everyone know who they should call.  Feel free to share if you’d like- you were great.
