Protection Well Worth The Price!

Here is something very interesting that we know many residents have thought of. Why if we live in a tornado zone state we are not offered a tornado shelter as part of a new house being build?

That is an awesome question. Lets think back to the time we purchased our first, second or third home. Were you ever offered the option to have a tornado safe room installed? I don’t think so……Instead we are offered crown molding, upgraded fixtures, recessed/vaulted ceilings, etc….Interesting isn’t it.

Now, we know there are probably building codes and certain codes of something that must be met to be able to offer tornado shelters in new home builds but how difficult could it be. As a builder how great would you feel if you saved lives along side of changing peoples lives as well.

Since this option is not available we decided to install our own tornado shelter. What is great about a tornado shelter is the increase percent of survival if a tornado ever decides to twist by your house. The chances of surviving a tornado with a well built and of course tested tornado shelter increase to 90% (this is our personal opinion percentage).

After seeing this shelter installed and in person we can surely say we feel tremendously safer during tornado season. Tornado season here in Indiana has been said to be from April-July; give or take a month or so.

We understand being able to afford a tornado shelter may be difficult for some interested parties but here are some options:

DO NOT SPEND YOUR TAX RETURN ON DUMB PURCHASES THAT REALLY DO NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE (you know who you are).

We understand as we have also made such purchases in the past.

We also suggest all day cares really consider installing tornado safe rooms as well. Honestly, the majority of them can afford it however, it does not mean to super inflate the cost of day care.
