Hey Debbie! Sorry it has taken me so long to send you this e-mail. I just used my shelter again last night for the third time since it was installed so I told myself I wouldn't let another day go by without sending you an e-mail.

First of all, thank you s000000 much for my shelter. It has given me such peace of mind when we have bad weather. When I moved down to Georgia 10 years ago the weather was nothing like it is now! We get a lot of weather coming in from Alabama and we have had a lot of tornado warnings and actual tornadoes. One was about 1 mile away from me...crossed over my sister's street! That was when I decided to call you and ask you to install one of your shelters last April, 2012. Since then I have used it three times!

It gives me such comfort knowing all I have to do is to go into my garage, slide the steel door open, and walk down the stairs. So far I have been with my friends each time. They run over from next door when we have a tornado warning. They love it as much as I do! When we slide the door closed, I am telling you, we all have such a feeling of safety!

I have a battery operated light blub with a holder that I was able to stick onto the wall. It lights up the whole shelter. My friend put a material on the stairs which is non-slip. We never slipped, but this gives us more traction on the steps. I'm going to put a pretty throw rug onto the floor also. All of the above makes it so cozy and comfortable! We bring our tablets and cell phones down with us so we can keep track of what's going on above us. We've had kids in there with us from 2 years old to 12 years old and they love it too. I also have all of my supplies down there with us...batteries, port - o - potty, toilet paper, paper towels, a case of water, etc. etc. i have put them under the stairs and they take up very little room and are not in our way at all.

I sometimes think what I used to be like when bad weather was coming...I was a nervous wreck! Just going to the bottom level of my house did not make me feel safe at all because it's still on the ground! I still absolutely hate it when we have a chance for tornadoes, but knowing we have our shelter to go into is an UNBELIEVABLE comfort for us all! Thank you!

Also, thank you so much for coming out here so quickly last year. Robert and Kalib were awesome! They knew exactly what they were doing and made the whole installation process fun. They were such nice guys and they cleaned up so nicely before they left.

I'm sending along some pictures I took on the day of installation. Some of them, unfortunately, have water spots on them ( must have been on my lens.) I'll pick out the good ones and send them to you. You may be getting a few e-mails. I think I can send only 5 per e-mail. The people you see in the pies are my friends who run over to share my shelter. They were with us the whole time when it was being installed.

Once again Debbie, thank you so much for the great experience of installation day and for my new "unbelievable shelter." I love it, love it, love itifill To know I can run down there when we have a severe weather situation is...priceless!

We want to thank everybody from Ground Zero for our new safe room. Everybody from the sales people to the installers were very professional. We hope we will never need to use it but if we do we will have peace of mind knowing it is a quality and safe place.

Storm Shelter Testimonials

Attention Vickie

Enclosed you will find a clipping from the Newton Daily News. This is our local paper. We have had people come to check out our shelter. As you know we had our storm shelter put in May 5 th and it was a very well organized piece of construction the way they put it in the floor of our garage. We moved what we wanted in it to be comfortable if we ever needed to use it. Well, the time came to use it (6) days after we had it installed. We had 75 MPH wind, hail, heavy rains and tornados were predicted on T.V. We moved into the shelter about 11:00 P.M. Sunday on Mothers Day and stayed in it until 12:30A. M. It was a scary feeling knowing that all of our worldly goods above us could be destroyed but our lives were safe as we sat and waited for the storm to pass. We want to thank you for the T shirt and are letting people know about your company.

Thanks again

Allie and Ed Frankfurt - Oklahoma City

Dear Ground Zero,

Our new storm shelter was installed on Tuesday • Tanner and Daniel from your company. We are older and had thought tha service was a dying art, especially with young people!

We were told they would arrive to install between 6 and 7:00 am. They arrived at 6:20 am and from then until the shelter was finished there was never a wasted motion. They were very well mannered, informed, patient, a well-oiled machine and a real credit to your company.

Our friends, Mark and Sandy Kern formerly of Perry, highly recommended your company and while we checked out several, we are so delighted we chose Ground Zero.

Please list us as very satisfied customers from beginning to end.

Dear Janel,

Your crew came on time and did a fantastic job today. We appreciate so much your team's professionalism and detailed work. I wish you and your company the best as you continue to serve families and help keep them safe from violent storms.

We just had one of your storm shelters installed.  First I would like to say that Daniel and Brandon were INCREDIBLE installers ....extremely hard working and courteous.  Everything was explained thoroughly and our garage was spotless.  I will definitely be recommending your company to friends and neighbors.


Good Morning,

I wanted to write a note to express what an EXCELLENT experience it has been working with Ground  Zero Shelters.

For starters, after very extensive research I found Ground Zero Storm Shelters to be the best fit for my family in comparison to all the several options there are out there.

From the first phone call to installation they have been great to work with. After buying our first home last year and dealing with the builder, furniture companies, insurance companies etc, it was refreshing to work with a company that knows not only how to build a great product but exceeds on customer service.

After living through the nightmare of April 27th and tornados blowing through our neighborhood March 3rd destroying homes, thanks to Ground Zero we can finally have peace of mind.

I have already done so and will continue to recommend your company for anyone looking to install a shelter.

Thank you or making this an easy process!

The Ground Zero Shelters staff is fantastic, professional, friendly, and helpful. We can't say enough and we have already told our friends. A job well done!

Very good folks and very clean and on time.

This morning your crew of two, Shannon and Cesar showed up on time and ready to go to work on our new storm shelter.  I wish to advise you that you have two great employees in these two men.  They worked effortlessly, tirelessly and professionally the entire time they were at my residence.  I have observed many contractor crews in our neighborhood since I retired a couple of years ago and have never seen any of them work as hard as these two.  They have the installation down to an "art form" and waste no time or motion in getting the job done and done well.

Thanks to both Shannon and Cesar for the efforts and to your organization for employing such reliable, dependable, hard-working people.  

- John and Tracey (Tulsa, OK)

We are more than pleased with our shelter. We are happy as larks:) The crew was beyond professional. We will be shouting your praises and are going to have an open house shelter viewing hhahaha I am going to put my sweet tadors in it for the winter:) We are going to leave the ground signs up at the driveway and might put them on the back side of the hill facing 144 to advertise.
Thank you soooooooooooo very much.

- Wanda & Mickey

I'm extremely happy with the install of the garage shelter. The workmanship on the shelter far exceeds my expectations. I have to commend you on your staff. Brook has been great from placement of order to scheduling. The install was flawless. Jade and Wade were courteous, professional and showed great respect for the product purchased as well as my property.  They were both meticulous with the install and the clean up. I have to commend you on your product and your staff.

- Darren (Altus, Oklahoma)

I want to thank you and your crew for the wonderful job they did with the installation of our strom shelter.  They were right on time and completed the work quickly and efficiently, without so much as a mess left behind.  The construction of the shelter is awesome and it was just as described on your website and through your e-mails.  My family can rest safe knowing that we have a quality product that was installed professionally.  Thanks again!

- Dennis

Today a Ground Zero shelter was installed at our home.  I want you to know how pleased we are with the installation, especially the crew that did the work.  Raul and his two crew members gave us everything we expected from a high performance team...prompt, friendly service and precision made the installation an all-around great experience for me and my family.  They were respectful of our property and took care to leave the work area as clean as when they arrived.  Congratulations for having skilled, friendly craftsmen representing your  company.  They represent you well and I am glad to recommend Ground Zero to my friends and colleagues.

On April 27, 2011, my son, who attends the University of Alabama, was in the tornado that hit Tuscaloosa.  Our home was completely destroyed, his car totaled, but he survived without a scratch, because he got in the tub with a mattress.  We since have had the house bulldozed, and are now working on new plans to rebuild.   We have already decided to have a safe room/storm shelter installed in the master closet for the new house.   Tonight, I was surfing the internet to look at some safe rooms and came across your website.  Upon opening your site, to my amazement, a picture of our home and his car was on your homepage.  We are very interested in having one of your shelters in our new home.

- Marisa

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your wonderful work!!!!   Your family (as friends) of course are a blessing, but this message is more than that.... a lifesaver too!!!!   We got to reap the benefits of your labor last night... and although with two smelly kids (and lets not even talk about all the animals), it was rather cozy in our shelter.   We truly are blessed to have had it!    Your work is a real blessing, and I am sure to MANY more than just our family!!!!  

- God bless in all you do!!!!

You installed a 12 man shelter for us and last Monday late afternoon, we had over 15 people in the shelter and if we had needed to have more we would have made room.  I was waiting for a neighbor to cross the street and a young mother and her two children were driving by and she was panicing with no place to go and we asked her and her children to come in and she was so happy.  You meet people when in a storm and we all become friends fast.  Thank you Ground Zero for the safe feeling during the May 10th storm.

- Steve

We appreciate Ground Zero Shelters and their fantastic shelter during the recent tornado.

- Paul

Thank you for installing the safe room for my nephew who is in a wheel chair. Ground Zero Shelters is fantastic and so professional when they install.  My sister called one one day and was in tears and she was so worried about her son, they have an outdoor shelter in the yard but he cannot get in to it, his wife and children were in it and he set in the hallway and had no protection.  They made arrangments to have it installed the next day.  What a relief for our family to know he is protected from the storms.   Thank you....Thank you.... 

- Kathy

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a very pleasant experience regarding my storm cellar installation.  The installers Joe and Travis were just great.  They were so polite, friendly and very professional  also very neat.  My garage was cleaner after the job was done than it has ever been.  Also they were very informative. They allowed me to watch them all afternoon and take pictures as the job progressed along. I couldn't be happier with the whole thing and very proud of my storm cellar. I would highly recommend your company to anyone!

- Elaine Sturdivant

We want to tell you how much we appreciate the quick response for the "entrance bar" to our shelter.  We never dreamed that you would be so quick to fill our needs.  Again, we are so glad that we chose your company to install our shelter.  We will continue to recommend your company to anyone we know that would like a shelter.

- Ken and Sharlene Leonard

Thanks each and everone of you for all of your efforts. We are 110% pleased with our saferoom.  From the way that it was built-to the way it was installed. We hope to get two more of our family members to do as we have done.  Please feel free to give our phone number to anyone interested. We will be glad to talk to them or show them our saferoom.

- Sturlin and Virginia C. | McCloud, OK

John M from Edmond,OK- We had a tornado shelter installed in our garage last week and I am so impressed with the guys that installed the shelter.  They were here when they said, did exactly what they said they would do , it has been a long time that anyone has fulfilled my expectations of any thing being done exactly like I was told when I bought it.  This shelter is a huge peace of mind to me and my family.  I cannot say how pleased I am with Ground Zero Shelters and their employees.  I have a shelter to protect my family, I would recomend these people to anyone.

Susan, Broken Arrow,OK-
Great job guys, I love my shelter!!!

I have had to use my shelter one time since it was installed and I want you to know that it was so easy to get into behind my car, I did not have to go outside in the weather to get in.  It is just like they promised.

- Katy, Yukon

I just wanted to convey my thanks to Ground Zero for a great job with my shelter installation this past Friday.  Your team, Shannon and Raul, did an outstanding job with a tough installation.  We ran into some unexpected difficulties with a water line that ran through an 18 inch footing in my slab, and we couldn’t complete the installation on the first day due to plumber availability in our local area.  Shannon and Raul stayed an extra night and hand mixed the concrete on Saturday morning to ensure the installation was completed correctly.  The end result was a very professional installation and a great looking shelter.  Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions about the project.  Thanks again for your help throughout this process and I plan to highly recommend your company and your product to my friends and neighbors.   Hopefully we won’t have to use the shelter, but if we do I feel confident we’ll be safe and sound!
