    • We highly recommend WB Lightning Rods. William was very responsive and was able to do our install within a week of our initial call. We are happy with the installation and feel relieved to have added lightning protection for our central Florida home.

    • I only had a limited window of time for this project. William and his son arrived on time and installed a system on my house very quickly. They had enough time left to complete my barn as well. The workmanship I saw on both structures was great. I highly recommend them to anyone else.

    • The installation was quick and with first rate. materials. The Tampa Bay area holds a US record for the number of thunderstorms per year. I think that one week after installation the RV storage building that is protected by the lightning rods was struck. Aside from one gosh awful noise there was no damage.

    Tree Lightning Protection System

    Lightning protection devices from WB Lightning Rods can lessen the likelihood of harm from a  lightning strike. In order to mitigate the risk of tree damage and carry the electrical charge to the soil, where the energy is diffused, lightning protection systems use copper conductors coupled to a ground rod. Our technologies have a strong track record of safeguarding trees, and also lessen the possibility of a side-flash to neighboring structures.

    The lightning rod, which Benjamin Franklin invented in 1749, is a metal pole mounted atop a building that draws lightning’s electrical charge away from the structure. The rod is attached to an aluminum or copper cable that’s connected to an underground conductive grid.
