If you live or work in an area where a lot of storms happen, enough so that lightning strikes are something to worry about, you may want to look into a few different ways to protect your business structure or your house from a lightning strike.
The problem with lightning is that it can come very quickly, and you never really know where it is going to hit.
Having something in place to keep anything from happening will ensure that your structure stays standing for years to come.
One of the most common implementations that you can make to protect your building is to get a lightning protection system, better known as a lightning rod.
These are usually set up near the building in order to attract the lightning strike and then neutralize it before it travels back into the ground.
By having it travel into the ground, essentially it will dissipate and not be of any danger to the building or surrounding trees at all.
