SAFEROOM INFORMATION PAGE

We have uploaded a tri-fold FEMA brochure with helpful Saferoom information for you.  

Please Link Here if you wish to view this information.

What is a Saferoom?

A saferoom is a small, windowless room built either inside or outside of a structure to provide you, your family and your belongings protection from severe weather.

How much protection will a Saferoom provide?

A Saferoom built according to FEMA approved plans can provide protection against winds of up to 250 mph or more and projectiles traveling at 100 mph or more - enough to protect the occupants from all but the most devastating tornadoes.

Where should I build a Saferoom?

Many people choose the master closet for the Saferoom.  It makes good sense because it protects most of the owners' belongings and it can double as a room to use in case of a home invasion crime.

What will it cost to build a Saferoom?

The average cost to build a Saferoom is $4000 to $5000. Price can vary by size and/or amenities added to the room.
