FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Much Does A Panic Room Cost?
The investment required to build a panic room in your home depends primarily on the following four factors, in descending order of cost impact:
- The number of entry points into the room (windows & doors)
- The armor protection level desired
- The size of the room
- The aesthetic complexity of the components desired
For example, the cost of converting a walk-in closet into a complete panic room would typically range from $15,000 to $40,000.
There are two main factors to consider when determining where to place a panic room in your home:
- What room(s) can my family access the quickest during an emergency
- What room(s) have the least access points to protect
Quick access may be the difference between the panic room being effective or not during an emergency. The first locations we generally recommend considering are master bedrooms and master closets.
Bedrooms are the room the average individual spends the largest amount of their time. A bedroom panic room even affords complete security while a homeowner is sleeping. Walk-in-closets are often right nearby. Other commonly used rooms include home offices, utility closets, and bathrooms.
However, budget naturally also comes into play. A room that requires less modification will require less investment to build. For example, a closet generally has little wall space to cover. Likewise, a basement room may be able to utilize existing foundational walls for protection.
The most costly elements are security components that require movement – namely, doors and windows. A large room with a single entry door is often less expensive to armor than a small room with multiple windows and doors.
Prevalence of Risk Profiles
No, a panic room can easily be retrofitted into an existing home. Installing a panic room can be a little more convenient during construction, and there are additional options for fortifying the walls, but the majority of our clients upgrade an existing room into a panic room. Panels are simply installed over existing walls (and then covered or painted). Doors and windows are simply swapped out.
We do much more than help you design your panic room. Our team supplies the structural components needed to build your panic room, as well as the expertise to go along with it.
All of our custom high security products are assembled in our factory for optimization and testing prior to shipment.
These items are then delivered to the home. Due to the plan created by Fortified Estate and the pre-built nature of the solutions (e.g. doors and windows) a local contractor, home or panic room builder can generally handle the final installation with our guidance.
