    Why You Need a Lightning Protection System in the State of Virginia

    Mother Nature can be beautiful and awe-inspiring. She can also be unpredictable and sometimes destructive. Millions of dollars are spent every year in repairing damage caused by tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, blizzards and lightning. While many of these acts of nature cannot be controlled, lightning strikes can.

    Virginia sees her fair share of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes with an average of 344,702 strikes annually. Although lightning strikes can occur any time throughout the year, summer is considered peak season in Virginia, especially during the summer storms.

    With our help, you won’t have to fear Virginia’s summer storms again. We’ll provide you with a lightning protection system that will guide the massive electrical current in the lightning strike safely to the ground, therefore ensuring the safety of your household.

    We are specialists in the provision of lightning protection systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications. Our professional staff is dedicated to ensuring customer satisfaction and excellent workmanship. We’ll ensure that the system we provide you with meets the Underwriters Laboratories and National Fire Protection Association standards.

If you want to protect your household and property from the dangers of lightning strikes, then you should contact us right away. We’ll provide you with an effective passive way to protect your household. Our lightning protection systems are designed to not only be effective but also be virtually invisible.

    Contact us today and we’ll design a system suited for your needs and requirements.

    Lightning Protection for Barns & Farmhouses

    Barn Lightning Protection

    We install lightning rods with wire connections to the ground for barns. If lightning strikes the barn, it won’t bother your horses because the rods will absorb the brunt of it.

    Lightning Protection for Trees

    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.

    Lightning Rods

    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.
