Storm Shelter FAQs

Click on the Questions below to view the Answers.

Are Romtec Storm Shelters prefabricated?

Romtec Storm Shelters are all designed in-house to meet the exact needs of each project in all 50 states. Our Storm Shelters are designed as site-built, permanent buildings, and are not prefabricated or modular units.

Can any Romtec building be made into a Storm Shelter?

Yes, Romtec can design any of its site-built, CMU block buildings to also function as a Storm Shelter. Meeting the requirements for above grade Storm Shelters and safe rooms involves more robust construction methods as well as including storm rated hardware, such as doors, vents, other components.

Can I get custom design features on my Storm Shelter?

Yes, Romtec is a design-build firm that specializes in developing affordable custom designs to meet all types of project requirements. We have helped thousands of projects get the features they need on their Storm Shelters. Each Romtec Storm Shelter is drawn in AutoCAD, submitted for your approval, and submitted for approval from the local building department.

Can I get Romtec Storm Shelter Plans in my Bid Specification Package?

Yes, Romtec helps our customers develop bid specifications that can integrate with their bid documents. Using Romtec during the specification process helps ensure that your project gets a Romtec Storm Shelter quoted during the bid process and ultimately approved and constructed.

How can I make my Storm Shelter more affordable?

One of Romtec’s specialties is in value-engineering current Storm Shelter building designs that are over budget. Romtec can take your existing drawings and reconfigure them to meet your price range and keep your project on schedule.

How long will it take for my Storm Shelter to be constructed?

Most Romtec Storm Shelters can be constructed in 2 to 3 months. Your construction timeline may vary between using a low-bid contractor or Romtec’s construction services, as well as the scope of work required onsite. On turnkey projects, Romtec will give you an accurate schedule for the delivery and construction of your Storm Shelter.

What is a Storm Shelter?

Storm Shelters are durable structures that are built to withstand severe weather while creating a safe place for people to wait out the storm. Most Storm Shelters are located below-grade in bunkers and cellars, but new construction methods and design standards reliably allow above-grade buildings to function as Storm Shelters. This lets communities procure multifunctional buildings such as restrooms that can be reinforced to function as a storm shelter building during extreme weather events.
