After the NIGHTMARE of having to have a rotting fiberglass tornado shelter replaced within 7 years or purchase, and many many stories of steel and concrete shelters that rusted and leaked in about the same time frame my husband and I started to look for an alternative. We NEVER want to replace another tornado shelter AGAIN.... trust me, if you think getting the thing in the ground is hard try getting one back out!! We specifically started looking for a plastic shelter knowing that just like in the landfills it does not easily break down. This shelter is the highest quality shelter we have EVER seen and we have looked at a lot of shelters. The plastic is super thick and there are two walls, one on the inside and one on the outside so NOTHING can get through. It was EXTREMELY easy to install, unlike our former fiberglass unit. Actually, my husband used a backhoe and did it himself in about 3.5 hours. We did not need to anchor our unit which means if we want to we can re-install it down the line in a different location if we want to. We LOVE that!! It is roomy and comfortable inside with seating in a circle all the way around. We even have room to keep emergency supplies down there. Best part is we NEVER have to worry about being left in the lurch like the last company we used. We never have to worry about leaking, cracking, rotting or rusting and TRUST ME that is worth every penny. Take it from us.... you get what you pay for! DON'T SKIMP ON A PURCHASE LIKE THIS... only buy the BEST because if you DON'T you WILL BE BUYING ANOTHER ONE!!! THIS shelter is the ONLY shelter you should BUY!
