What Happens When Lightning Strikes your Long Beach/Oceanside Home?
While many homes are built to withstand lightning strikes without having any major damage..But there is always a change that this can happen to you! When lightening strikes your home it can travel in a number of directions. Roofing generally is the one that takes the biggest hit but also metal gutters can as well. The surge will usually take the path of least resistance, which means that the electricity can run through all of the wiring and plumbing in your home.. while some evidence of this may be obvious some times it is not and the affected plumbing and wiring may burn slowly inside the walls without you even realizing it!
