We include safety features, like a storm shelter, in every home we build because we believe safety isn’t optional.
One item that is usually at the top of the list is our Storm Safe storm shelter. Since we include one in every home, Homes by Taber is now the largest purchasers of storm shelters in the country. We wear that distinction very proudly because it directly benefits our homeowners and provides priceless peace of mind that can’t be replaced. Taber LeBlanc believes that these should be mandatory, but until then, he will include them on his own to set the home safety standards higher across Oklahoma.
Another safety feature we include is a full security system wired throughout the home. There are smoke detectors in all living areas and bedrooms and carbon monoxide detectors in the main living areas. These are all hardwired into the security system so when monitored, the fire department will be on the way in case of an emergency. What can be better than that? It all works on a single battery system that lasts for five years, so you are not trying to hunt down that pesky beeping unit that is alerting you to a low battery every six months.
The Air Filtration System that we include provides a safe indoor air environment for your family, virtually eliminating mold, pollen, bacteria, and dust. Homes will have less dust floating around and homeowners will have fewer allergens to deal with, providing a happy and healthy home.
We provide extra gas shutoff valves in convenient locations by your appliances in the homes. Instead of having to slide out appliances to shut off the gas in an emergency, we install them inside cabinets for easy access. This is not something that is required by code, but it’s something we do to ensure quick gas shutoff for our homeowners.
Homeowners should not have to worry about adding these safety features after they move in. We want them to enjoy them from the first day they step into their home.
