Why Your Home Needs Lightning Protection

Lightning causes more than just structural damage. Lightning strikes can also result in serious bodily injury and, in rare cases, death. While searching for a path to the ground, lightning will sometimes utilize water pipes, computers, cable lines, and electrical lines. As the strike moves between objects, the potential for fires and explosions increases. Despite what many people may believe, living in a one-story home or a low-lying area doesn’t decrease the risk of lightning strikes. Lightning is unpredictable and can strike anywhere.

Residential Lightning Systems

With the increased use of electronics and electrical appliances, modern homes are particularly at risk for potential lightning strikes. Our skilled Estimators will take these features into account and formulate a protection plan suitable for your home. Despite what some people believe, lightning protection systems do not attract more lightning strikes. In fact, these systems aren’t even designed to prevent them. Instead, our devices help to direct lightning safely into the ground to discharge the electricity, reducing the threat to your property. Please keep in mind that lightning systems should only be installed by professionals. Improperly installed systems can not only be ineffective, but also dangerous.
