Each year thousands of homes and other properties are destroyed or damaged by lightning strikes. Unprotected homes risk the possibility of damage by fire, explosions or electrical surges. Personal injury frequently occurs in an unprotected house which has been struck. The effects of such a strike may be both physically and emotionally devastating.
A1 lightning protection system of proper materials, correctly installed according to the best protective science, will guard your family for the lifetime of the house when properly maintained. An improper system or a system that is not properly installed may not protect your home, it may even contribute to the loss of the house if it is struck. Therefore, it is very important that you contact a professional, qualified to design and install a certified lightning protection system uniquely special to your home.
