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. Homes in Florida, and especially Central Florida, are highly susceptible to being hit by lightning due to the volume of lightning strikes that occur annually. Lightning-attractive metal building components, irrigation and security systems, invisible and electric fences, sensitive electronic computers and appliances are essential components of the modern home. These features can increase a homeowner’s potential for lightning damage. A modern lightning protection system protects a home from lightning damage. A lightning protection system neither attracts, repels or prevents a lightning strike. The lightning protection system simply provides a safe path for the lightning current to follow – allowing the harmful current to be guided safely into the ground and away from your home.
Gutters are installed to capture water from your roof and channel it away from your home thereby protecting it from water damage to siding, windows, doors, landscaping, walkways, and the home’s foundation. One inch of rainfall can result in 500 gallons of water running off your rooftop. While gutters come in steel and copper, we specialize in installing seamless aluminum gutters due to their popularity, durability, and cost advantages over other materials. Aluminum is easy to work with, will not rust over time, is available in a wide range of colors, and doesn’t require special support structures due to their light weight. Our gutters are custom fabricated onsite so they’re guaranteed to fit your home. Our gutters come with a limited lifetime warranty on both materials and labor.
