We have expanded our line of shelters. We now offer safe rooms and above ground concrete shelters. We serve most of the Kansas area.

Just had my storm shelter placed in my garage in Benton, Ks. Eric was excellent to work with, knowledge, prompt and kept me informed. He even made arrangements for me to see a shelter before I made my decision. Installation was easy, the crew was very professional and clean up nicely once the job was done. I would strongly recommend!! Susan M.

Just had my storm shelter put in my garage. Eric and his team were there on time and had it all done in just a few hours. Eric was in constant communication with me during the process and it was a great experience. I have never felt better about an investment!!

"Storm Defense Shelters" recently installed a below ground storm shelter in our garage. Eric and his crew were professional, friendly, and knowledgeable of their product and job duties. Eric called us back a couple of times; after installation to make sure that we were satisfied w/his job & our shelter. The "Tornado Safe" shelter is a very sound and study product. Certainly recommended for peace of mind and family safety!

Eric and his team are very professional and great to work with. From beginning to end they were continually cleaning up after themselves and were very careful not to damage anything while they worked. I would not hesitate to recommend! Job well done, thank you Eric

Eric from Storm Defense Shelter was very professional. He also was very knowledgable about the different shelters they offer. We decided on the under ground tornado shelter in the garage, it only took them the morning to install it It was great investment.We don't regret doing business with them and really recommend them if you are considering to purchase a tornado shelter.

Shopped a number of different companies, but Storm Defense Shelters had the best product I feel. Eric was more than helpful answering my many questions. In addition to meeting me at a site of one of their storm shelters at a clients home. At time for the install they were right on time. Very happy with my shelter and the entire process associated with my purchase. I'm a happy camper.

We purchased a Storm Defense Shelter from Eric and the whole process went smoothly. My wife inquired about a shelter on their website and Eric called us yet that day to answer any questions about the shelters (Eric always answers his phone). He visited our house that Saturday to give a quote, and we found Storm Defense Shelters provided a fair price and excellent quality. Eric and his team were on time and ready to work and the install was seamless. The city building inspector seemed very pleased, and all my neighbors were surprised at how quickly the whole process took (6hrs). I could not imagine a better process from quote to install. We now feel ready for storm season.

While searching for storm shelters, my wife found Eric with Storm Defense Shelters, located just inside Butler County. She talked to Eric and thought his business was the one to go with, but wanted me to talk to him too. I then talked with Eric and he seemed very pleasant and knowledgeable about storm shelters. He explained the whole process and even gave me information that Lowe's had a demo model of one of the storm shelters he installs, which happened to be a demo of an in ground storm shelter. After looking at the in ground storm shelter at Lowe's, I was sold on the product and the fact that a Lowe's employee was part of Eric's installation process. I called Eric back and set up the date and time for the install. The crew came and worked hard all day and explained the process as it had been explained before. They were very hardworking and enjoyable to be around. They went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the finished product and cleanup. I am a very picky person when it comes to having something done and I am very satisfied with the completed job and our in ground storm shelter. I highly recommend this shelter and to have it installed by Eric and his crew at Storm Defense Shelters. Make sure to visit their website: and give him a call, you will be glad you did. Thanks Eric and crew for giving us peace of mind when severe weather strikes.

After shopping for shelters-- calling around-- Eric seemed the most knowledgeable. He sold a quality product and service. He (and his workers) installed the shelter just as he said they would. He takes time to answer questions and explain more if necessary. We would recommend him. They clean up very well when the job is finished. They also take the time to explain things while they are doing the installation. Eric and his crew are very professional. Now my family has the peace of mind of a place to go should a tornado occur.

Before having a storm shelter installed in my sons garage, I did a a lot of research. After talking to a couple of other company's I was impressed with Eric. He took the time to answer my questions, worked me into his schedule and kept in touch. Not only was I impressed the shelter they installed, I was very impressed with the installation. They left the garage so clean. Very happy with the whole process and will sleep better at night knowing my grandchildren have a safe place to go. Cathy A. from Great Bend.

We just had a shelter installed in our one car garage, and could not be happier with the results. Eric and his crew came out on Sunday and started the job. Then completely finished everything Monday. They did a great job cleaning up after the work was accomplished. They did and amazing job and we will be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a shelter! Thank you for giving us peace of mind. Kyle & Chelsie H.
