Residential Lightning Protection
Residential Lightning Protection System Protect Your Home and Your Family. Modern lightning protection systems blend with the style and materials of the home – making the system practically invisible from the ground. A lightning strike to an unprotected home can be catastrophic. A single bolt of lightning can carry over 30 million volts of electricity. Lightning can rip through roofs, explode brick and concrete and ignite fires. In addition to causing structural damage, a single bolt of lightning can wreak havoc with computers, electronic equipment and appliances. Every year in the United States the number of homes struck by lightning increases. According to the Insurance Information Institute, residential lightning losses exceed a billion dollars annually and represent close to five percent of all residential insurance claims.
