Whether your property is in the midst of a drought or the midst of a hurricane, the best place to find a safe refuge during a storm is underground. There are several different types of storm shelters, ranging from small shelters for residential use to massive, super-school-sized emergency shelters. The best part is that these shelters are inexpensive, so you'll save lots of money.
In contrast to above-ground storm shelters which require digging a hole in the ground below-ground shelters are easy to put up. They are simply lowered into the hole and backfilled with concrete. The Shelter is then bolted to a concrete slab when the weather gets severe. They are more secure than shelters above the ground because they are built below the ground. And you'll never have to worry about a leaky roof or uncomfortable, damp conditions.
There are underground shelters you can put in your garage, and also above-ground storm shelters. This kind of shelter is similar to underground storm shelters, except that it's installed under the garage. The only difference is that the above-ground shelters are constructed of high-quality steel and must conform to the specifications of FEMA and local codes. It is the most effective way to protect your home. However it is recommended you hire a professional to assist you with obtaining permits and build your storm shelter.
