Lightning Damage

Home electronics and electrical equipment are especially vulnerable to lightning strikes. Lightning also has a catastrophic nature that can lead to extensive damage to both electronics and the residences that contain them.

Our engineers have investigated direct lightning strikes and after-effects of strikes — including destroyed appliances, power surges, fires and exterior damage. Their electrical expertise includes a deep understanding of the function of electrical equipment and systems including HVAC systems, heat pumps, irrigation system motors, alarm systems, electronics and wiring to determine if they can be repaired or will require replacement.

We provide timely damage assessments by highly specialized investigators. In fact, our origin and cause investigators and engineers are Certified Fire and Explosion Investigators (CFEI) by the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI). Additionally, all engineers are licensed by state engineering licensing boards as professional engineers (PE).
