For your home, we
offer a complete lightning protection system, and because
each home is different, we design the system to best
meet your needs, and ultimately, offer the best protection
from lightning and power surges.

for the lightning to follow, thereby avoiding destruction,
fire and injury or death as the current is directed to
follow that path.

Hamilton Lightning Protection designs your system, laying

With a properly installed lightning protection
system from Hamilton Lightning Protection, you can be
assured that your home is better prepared to withstand
a cloud to ground lightning strike, protecting the structure,
your electronic equipment, and most importantly, the people
