Safe Rooms: Costs and Financing

There are a number of different options you can select from when you are looking at putting a safe room in your home.

The average cost is somewhere between $3,000 to $6,000. In many instances there is funding available from local agencies to help cover the cost of building a safe room. The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offers mortgage insurance to enable home buyers to borrow up to $5,000 to build a tornado safe room.
