Consider several factors before purchasing a protection system.
Whether you invest in such a system will depend upon the frequency and severity of thunderstorms in your area, the value and nature of each building and its contents, the relative building exposure (whether located on a hill or in a valley), and the hazards to people and/or livestock.
Other important considerations are the indirect losses that might result from building destruction, fire or loss of livestock. (Example: you can’t replace a top-performing herd that years of personal effort have developed.)
By evaluating your needs, the insurability factors and an gathering accurate cost estimates, you can decide the relative importance of such an investment.
