Texas Tornado Storm Shelters
5.0
After having received a rebate offer from the North Texas Council of Governments, we decided to have an underground tornado shelter installed at our home in Plano. We researched the different types of shelters available, and settled on the concrete type. We were attracted to Texas Tornado Storm Shelters in McKinney due to their sale price on a 6'x8' shelter. Texas Tornado Storm Shelters is a division of Septic Solutions of McKinney. When Chris came out to do the measurements to make sure the shelter would fit on our small lot, we discovered that it would not. We then opted for the 5'x7' flat top shelter, and in hindsight we are glad to have chosen this shelter even though it is more expensive than the larger shelter due to the fact that it is installed deeper underground and the top is basically flush with ground level. A permit is required to install a shelter in Plano, and Chris spent countless hours preparing the papers which helped us obtain the necessary permit and HOA approval. After a couple of false starts due to a delivery problem and the weather, we now have our shelter installed. Chris is amazing with his Bobcat machinery which has multiple attachments, including a high powered jack hammer which was needed when he hit rock a few feet down. The installation went smoothly, and we were all amazed at how the shelter was shoehorned into our small area. There was no room for error, and none was made. Tiffany, the office manager was extremely helpful throughout the process as well. I know that many other companies would have dropped our project because it was too difficult and time consuming, but Texas Tornado Storm Shelters stuck with us, and we couldn't be happier with our shelter. I am confident that they bring this same work ethic and professionalism to their Septic Solutions business as well.

American Tornado Master
5.0
We decided to put in an above ground tornado shelter because of all the tornadoes in the area last year. We had one within 5 miles of our home the other year. I did a lot of research on-line and American Tornado Master was the only local area dealer that had all of their designs tested at Texas Tech Wind Science Engineering Center and engineered to meet or exceed the FEMA 320/361 and the ICC-500 Building codes. The shelter is also well constructed with heavier gauge materials than most of their competitors and they also powder coat the shelter instead of just using paint (more durable). We found the price to be higher than some other competitor's standard prices that I found on-line, but felt the quality and testing of their product was worth the extra cost. I know that they were really busy since it took almost a month and a half to get a salesman to even come out to give us a quote and go over our options. The only thing that I found disappointing was the lack of a firm delivery and installation date. I was told they normally would get the installation done in 3 to 4 weeks, but due to the amount of business they had, they could not be certain. I did not hear anything from the company after 3 weeks and called the office to check on the installation date. They did respond to my calls, but still could not give me a definite delivery date. They did schedule the garage foundation check for cables and plumbing (install prerequisite) during the 4th week. I then received a call on Thursday (4th week) and they asked if an installation on Saturday was OK. I put some of my weekend plans on hold and told them to go ahead since we wanted to get this done. The installers did a good job and were very careful. It took about three and a half hours to have the shelter unloaded and installed. Overall I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the tornado shelter. It is also an excellent safe room as well.

Gimme Shelter
5.0
After years of researching storm shelters and waiting on the long list for a state rebate that never would be a reality, I could no longer place a price on my piece of mind. There were many factors affecting my decision to purchase from Gimme Shelter: -These shelters are F5 certified, exceeding FEMA 320, 361, and ICC 500 protocols (these are the shelters that we see featured on the news/weather stations undergoing rigorous testing at Texas A&M) -Taylor (the owner) was obviously passionate about not only providing shelter, but doing so with integrity. No gimmicky add-ons, and no extra charges for placing the door with a bullet-proof window on the long side of my unit. -Gimme Shelter is the ONLY co. that includes a 20 yr. transferrable warranty for full replacement of any shelter that is damaged by a storm/tornado. -Due to the fact that it is now "off-season", installation could be scheduled within the week. -After determining placement in my garage and measuring for fit, Taylor saw that I would have to move a large shelf and various items to make space for the shelter. He rolled up his sleeves (in 100 degree temps) and helped me move everything (even taking several items to the attic). YES, this is a lengthy review, but it was an important decision. I cannot express the relief that comes with knowing that I no longer need to crouch in a closet, hoping for the best. I HAVE the best!

The team over at Texas tornado was extremely helpful. In explaining our options and installation process we were confident in our purchase. There was a bit of a back up due to increased orders due to demand after the OK storms - but our sales rep was great in keeping us in the loop. Installation was thorough and the process was explained to us. Flashing had to be removed to get unit in garage but the crews advised us - fixed all back in original shape. They took the time to review the unit with us and ensure we were happy with the unit.

Guys were on time and they were in and out in a few hours. Cleaned up after they installed and showed me how the lights and locks worked. I was pleased that this shelter can be customized to any room in the house but since my budget was limited and I couldn't afford a customized shelter I decided to go with the affordable pre-sized one. Trust me I looked everywhere and compared pricing and must say I did not find a better product at a better price. The owner was great to work with too - very personable. HIGHLY recommend this business if you are considering a tornado shelter ... you need to check this out. 100% pleased.

American Tornado Master
5.0
I had initially planned an in-ground garage floor storm shelter, and received two bids, one from American Tornado Master Inc. and another from a North Texas based smaller company that specializes specifically in garage floor storm shelters. I then decided instead to purchase an above ground safe room, as I had the ideal location for one. I then received bids from the same two companies, and chose the cheaper bid from the smaller company. This was a huge mistake. The other small North Texas based company required a down payment of 50%, which is common. The small North Texas based company took my money, and I have had to take legal action to recover the money that I put down. After my experience with the other small North Texas based company, I then called American Tornado Master Inc., and this is where everything went right. The product was more expensive; however, short of having saved my family’s life in a storm (which is a test that I hope to not experience), the safe room is of top quality. The company delivered the product when they said it would arrive, and the installation was done with care and precision. The installers took their time and made sure that the job was done correctly. The safe room’s powder coating even gives it a good appearance. The room comes with three deadbolt locks and two steel interior door braces, making the room impenetrable from the outside. The construction of this safe room is better than what I have seen elsewhere, and the sales pitch about the quality of the product is the real deal in my opinion. American Tornado Master Inc. delivered me a quality product, great service and piece of mind knowing that I have the best constructed safe room available. As for price, the sales professional made it clear that other safe rooms are less expensive, and sold the quality of the product. That initially did not impress me; however, I now believe in the quality of the product. Other companies may claim to sell an equal quality product at a lower price. I would very much recommend that a purchaser of a steel safe room consider this claim with some skepticism and do some research. For this reason, I am giving an “A” rating for price, since I do not feel that I really have an “apples to apples” comparison with other products available in my area. I highly recommend American Tornado Master Inc. for steel above ground safe rooms. I would assume that their other products are of the same quality.

Tornado Tough Tornado Shelters

In mid-March 2015 I found the Tornado Tough Tornado Shelters website and their products looked good as well as their prices so I called. Tony answered and said that they would need a deposit ($670.00) and that a project manager would contact me within a few days to start get everything rolling and that in a few short weeks we would have our storm shelter completed. I called about a week later and Tony stated that they would actually contact me after the deposit / transaction actually went through and said that they were very busy with orders. On March 30 I saw that the transaction on the deposit hit my bank and also received an email stating that they received my deposit. I responded to the email and asked when I would be contacted. A few days later, I sent another email since I did not get a response. On April 8 I called Tony, he again said they were so busy and that someone would get in contact with me. Waited - called and left Tony a voicemail - no response. Sent emails, no response...and repeat. Fast Forward to Friday, 05/01 04:09p INCOMI CL 479-366-0481 - Tony called - I told him I want my deposit refunded immediately. Tony said "but your unit is schedule to be installed the week of May 12". Really - they are just going to magically drop it in without any prework, planning, etc??? I told Tony that we were not even in town that day and to refund my money. Tony said he would get someone on it - sure you will Tony, sure you will. The next day, while on the phone with my daughter a truck pulls up to your gate (kind you need a remote control to open - has the hydrolic rod) and he yelled that he was here to mark utilities to install our shelter. Yelled back and said we cancelled that - this 'man' proceeded to push through our closed gate. I started yelling get out, get out, do not come in here - get off my property (Scared my daughter). He proceeds to walk up the drive, through the breezeway and up to my door and said he had to mark for utilities. All the while I am yelling at him to get out and trying to hold the door because my dogs are trying to push their way through the door (I know, in hindsight I should have done something a little different). My yelling and the dogs barking got my husband?s attention from the back of our property and he ran up as the guy now pulled on the gate to let himself out. I believe the company name on the side of the truck was NSIS. We had to pay the fence guy to come out and fix our front gate because apparently they are not made to forcibly push / pull on them. It would not close all the way and we need the fence to keep our dogs in and other animals out. Now here we are, June 05, 2015, no refund, zero communication and looks like I will be contacting an attorney. I would stay as far as possible away from this company.
