Whether your property is in the midst of a drought, or in the middle of a hurricane, the best place to find a safe haven during a storm is underground. There are several different types of storm shelters, ranging from small shelters for residential use to large, super school-sized emergency shelters. The best part is that these kinds of shelters are inexpensive, so you'll save a lot of money.
Below-ground shelters are a lot easier to set up than above-ground storm shelters. Shelters are simply lowered into the hole, then filled with concrete. When the weather gets bad enough the lid is put on and the Shelter is secured to the concrete slab. They are safer than shelters that are above ground because they are built below the ground. You won't need to worry about an unattractive roof or damp conditions.
In addition to above-ground storm shelters, there are also underground shelters that you can install in your garage. This kind of shelter is similar to other underground storm shelters, except that it is installed beneath the garage. The only difference between above-ground shelters and other underground shelters is that they are constructed of high-quality steel. They must also meet local codes and FEMA requirements. This is the best option to safeguard your home. However, it is recommended that you hire a professional to help you get the permits and construct your storm shelter.
