It is common for people today to be weekend warriors and tackle projects, such as installing storm shelters, on their own. While DIY might work well for decorating a home or building a small structure, the risk of installing your own storm shelter isn’t worth the risk. Working with a company like Shelter Solutions of Arkansas allows you to work with a trusted shelter installer that has the knowledge and experience necessary to safely install a storm shelter in your home.
Why Choose Us to Install Your Storm Shelter?
Our installers use only the best products available. Much like a chain, a storm shelter is only as strong as its weakest link. If done properly, the anchoring system will be the strongest part of the system. Like a weld, some people tend to believe that is the weakest part in a structure, but if welded correctly, the weld itself should be stronger than the rest of the steel. Our anchors work in the same way. We are certified by Hilti, our anchor manufacturer in the correct
installation and in choosing the correct anchor application for your shelter. We often get customers that are interested in getting information on what is required to build their own shelter either out of steel or filled block. We can provide information on what works best, but in the end, it will save time, effort, research, and money to let us handle it. We have years of product development, testing, and engineering in our products and are confident they will work to provide protection and peace of mind for you and your family when you need it the most.
Speaking of saving money, did you know we offer a $250 military and veteran discount on all of our shelters? We only need a copy of a valid military ID or a DD-214 when the purchase order for the shelter is filled out and returned to our office during the initial purchase.
Why Shouldn’t I Install My Own Storm Shelter?
No loss of life has been reported for anyone that has been sheltered in a storm shelter that meets or exceeds FEMA-320 and ICC-500 standards. There are so many instances of people being injured (or worse) by being in a shelter they designed and built themselves in an attempt to save some money. Product and component failure in our industry in not an option. Our shelters come with warranties so you do not have to worry about your shelter having issues after you purchase it.
If your in-ground shelter ever were to leak or to rust through within 10 years from installation, just give us a call and we will come out. If it is something we can fix, we will fix it, and if it’s an issue that cannot be repaired, then we will replace it with a brand new unit free of charge. Our above ground safe rooms come with a lifetime structural warranty. It isn’t like a truck, car, or washing machine; it will not wear out over time. We want you to only purchase one! In fact, if you are involved in a direct hit from a tornado and it gets the powder coat finish dinged up by flying debris, we will replace it with a new one. We want you to be proud of your purchase and we want you to feel safe and secure in it. Our company is committed to providing protection and peace of mind for families in Arkansas and the surrounding states. It is a very important task that we do not take lightly.
