Is a Personal Storm Shelter Worth the Investment?

Storm shelters and safe rooms have become a common addition to people’s homes and around public spaces, for extra security in times of storms and natural disasters.

Developed by companies such as Oklahoma Shelters, these rooms are far from ordinary in design and function. Engineered to withstand the most intense impacts and force, they are repeatedly tested through measures such as the Texas Tech Impact Test.

However, there’s no denying that they can come with a hefty price tag that may leave you second-guessing if they’re worth the investment. Here are some things to consider before you make your decision:

They’re a value-adding feature.

Often homeowners are concerned about the steep costs of purchase, installation, and potential remodeling that come with shelter installations. However, a few thousand dollars are nothing when compared to the safety of your loved ones.

All that aside, however, a storm shelter can go a long way in boosting your property’s value, especially when you decide to sell. They’re a major amenity and can significantly help up market value, showing future owners that your home is designed to withstand anything.

Installation is easy and convenient.

We take pride in offering installation services ourselves, trusting only our skilled and experienced team to get the job done. Installation is also much simpler than you’d think, with the shelters being designed to offer maximum convenience, space-saving, and multi-functional spaces.

If you’re still on the fence, know that rooms in your home are simply not enough, and community shelters might not always have space available. You can count on a private shelter to always be available to you and your family, including elderly relatives and pets.
