We get this question more than any other. How much does a tornado shelter cost? Purchasing and installing a tornado shelter is one of the most complicated transactions you can make. Buying a new car with loaded options is a more streamlined transaction. Not to say that customizing a personalized tornado shelter is overly complicated, but perfecting a structure to save your life is more complex than deciding if you want heated seats in your new Honda Civic. With so many options and scenarios to consider when quoting a price, it’s impossible to give each customer a fixed or blanket price for each model of storm shelter that we currently offer. Take shelter sizes as the perfect example. Each customer will likely order a different shelter with the exact size dimensions. Each home has a unique floor plan and limitations when designing a tornado shelter to install in a residence. There’s no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ mentality. As a result, giving a fixed price on a particular model would be misleading and unethical to potential customers.

No Bells or Whistles, But Endless Options and Customized Safety Solutions for Every Customer

Underground Storm Shelter Bunker includes a full Bathroom with a chemical toilet, pressurized fresh water tank, running sink water, gray water storage tank, and shower.

There’s nothing superfluous or frivolous about any option on a customized tornado shelter. Everything included in a customized tornado shelter order is designed to save your family’s life or make their stay behind the steel panelized walls a little more comfortable. From the mechanical ventilation to the alcohol-burning stove and bunkbeds, a tornado shelter from U.S. Safe Room is optimized to withstand any external threat, including boredom and isolation during chaotic events. How could one possibly affix a firm price tag to a model that is as diverse as the potentially life-altering events we face every day? Even home building expert Bob Vila is hesitant to pinpoint an exact pricing point when it comes to how much a tornado shelter costs. The building guru estimates that your typical underground shelter could run you anywhere from $4,000 to $30,000. While the expert repairman covers nearly the entire gamut of total costs and installation, such a wide figure is of little help when you’re trying to get a finalized price for financing.
