A lightning strike to your home is no minor event. Lightning strikes are extremely powerful and can cause untold damage. A power surge will destroy electrical and computer cabling, as well as computer and telephone equipment. A lightning strike may also cause damage to copper pipework and water systems. Ceilings can also be compromised and plasterwork may even burst.
Lightning strikes are NOT an ‘Act of God’ in respect of insurance claims and are fully covered by most policies.
