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.
