Our family has been protecting your family and
business from deadly lightning since 1923.
For nearly a century the Paxson family has been dedicated to lightning protection with a commitment to community service and quality workmanship – commitments that continue today. Like our company, the lightning rod has a proven track record of protecting the structures, the equipment and even lives from the devastating results of powerful lightning strikes and damaging power surges. As our world has modernized increasing our dependence on sophisticated electronic devices, Paxson Lightning Rods has continued to develop and evolve to meet these needs. More lightning protection systems are installed now then ever before.
All of our projects are certified by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and meet all of the standards established by the Lightning Protection Institute (LPI) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). As UL members, the quality and conformity of our work is more than just paper compliance – it is certified by on-site field inspections. We don’t believe in short cuts when it comes to safety.
Based on our extensive service record in the Mid-Atlantic, our extremely qualified team and our community involvement you can count on Paxson to design and install a lightning protection system that ensures the safety of everything you value. Our most important product is peace of mind. At Paxson Lightning Rods we are proud of our accomplished history and our experienced team of professional lightning protection contractors.
