How to Schedule a Safe Room Installation
Typically your safe room installation can be scheduled within two to three weeks of the date you call, but please keep in mind that if it’s during spring or summer months, it could take up to 8-10 weeks to get you scheduled. Depending on the season, snow, rain and severe weather can also delay our schedule.
No down payment is required to get on our schedule but payment is due in full at the time of installation. ‘
Sprague’s Backhoe will contact OKIE 811 to locate member companies’ lines before we start your job. Note: OKIE 811 does not locate gas lines, sewer lines or water lines from the meter to the house, private water and septic lines or sprinkler lines. It is the customer’s responsibility to know the location of private lines.
It is the homeowner’s responsibility to obtain a storm shelter permit from their city office, if required, but each city has different requirements and pricing.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We already have an in ground shelter but mom’s knees can’t make the stairs anymore. She got this so she can get in and out easily. We have already put in a little corner shelf and some chairs inside. Now to just get supplies inside. Mom really loves the door on it. – Susan M., Blanchard, OK
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Above ground concrete shelter installed in March 15, 2019. Very professional and knowledgeable with all rebate paperwork provided promptly for me to submit. I recommend Jack and Stacey Sprague Backhoe for your storm shelter purchase and installation. I try to support local businesses whenever possible because my parents owned a small business in Duncan OK for many years and my Son own a heating and air conditioning business in Mustang. – Terrie T., Tuttle, OK
