What we do

  • 1

    An effective lightning protection system is more than "connecting part A to part B" and hoping that it works. Tri-State Lightning Protection can design an effective, efficient and aesthetically pleasing system to protect your structure.

  • 2

    After the system is designed, Tri-State Lightning Protection uses only UL approved parts and is fully insured for your peace of mind.

    Inspection and Maintenance

    If you have an existing lightning protection system, Tri-State Lightning Protection can meet with you to answer any questions. We also offer an inspection service. If your system is in need of any repairs or updating, we can provide that too.
