Maxwell Lightning Protection Co.

» residential services


This is where our company started. We take great pride in all of our residential projects. We have protected everything from bird houses to homes having as much as 65,000 square feet. We offer a wide range of installations, designed by us, to meet the needs of our customers.

Typical Residential Lightning Protection Installation


Every residential lightning protection system must be specifically designed to provide air terminals at all locations vulnerable to a lightning strike, and all air terminals must provide multiple paths to an adequate grounding system. Consequently, each project will vary in scope from residence to residence.


» residential service territory


Our territory for surveying a residence is 100 miles from Dayton, Ohio. Also, we will survey 50 miles from Columbus and Zanesville. However, others outside of this area who wish to obtain our services can do so by sending a sketch, pictures and/or a drawing of the residence to be protected. We will be happy to serve you.

» how to receive a no-Cost estimate


To obtain a complete, no-cost estimate for lightning protection on your property, send a drawing of the building you wish to protect. These sketches do not have to be masterpieces of art, outlines only are fine, but the better they are the more accurate and complete our estimates will be.

As an alternate to hand drawn views, you may use photographs of the areas. This should include length and width of the structure-- including all dormers, side wings, porches and decks, etc., and also the height from ground to eave line or roof edge, and height to roof peaks. Again, be sure to include dormers and wings, etc. Also show the approximate location of gutters, downspouts, plumbing vents, attic vents, all chimneys and outside water faucets (hose bibs).
