are our customers saying about us?
would like to express my gratitude and recommendation for
Classic Lightning Protection for the lightning protection
that was installed on my residence up in Overgaard, Arizona.
We have three structures: multi-level home, a detached garage
and an observatory. Classic Lightning installed protection
on all 3 of these buildings. The observatory was a particular
challenge due to the domed roof structure. This was accomplished
using a rod that was placed on a custom manufactured tower.
The installation was completed in the fall of 2013. This turned
out to be a very fortuitous time to complete this as in July
of the following year; we had an enormous strike hit our garage.
My son was inside the building at the time and had we not
had the protection at a minimum I know we would have had a
fire and at worse, since all of our heating was from propane,
we could have had an explosion. Because of the protection
this was all prevented. The very next month we had at least
two more hits that I can verify as we were present; one to
the home and the other to the observatory. None of these resulted
in any damage to the structures.
Kevin Morris and his crew are very competent and do a professional
job from the initial consultation to the completion of the
job and even follow-up later on. I'm an electrical engineer
by trade so I know a bit more about electricity than the standard
consumer. I can say, unequivocally, that Classic Lightning
Protection fully understands lightning and how to protect
your home and buildings against lightning strikes. I recommend

'Dedicated to excellence' is our motto when building our custom

I use. Kevin has shown professionalism in all aspects of his
work along with excellent rapport with my clients, in that,
Kevin will always follow-up and makes himself available to

He shows attention to all detail, is dependable to arrive

is viewed by my clients. These are strong traits that I appreciate
in Kevin and Classic Lightning Protection that I do not normally
find in other subcontractors. I would not hesitate to continue

have found Mr. Morris to be a man of his word. His workmanship
was professional in all respects and according to Underwriters
Laboratories' recommendations, materials, and quality. I was
very satisfied with the installation."
Ben Brunner, Payson, AZ
have used many lightning protection contractors and have found
this firm to be one of the finest and professional. Classic
Lightning had performed exceptionally well for us on past
projects...when the opportunity came up to use them (again),
we were very pleased to have them on our team. We will be
using their firm again on our future projects and highly recommend
them to anyone that may be considering them.”
have to say, this turned out better than I expected when they
(your workers) first started. I thought it would be really
ugly and stand out, but your crew did a good job of hiding
what they could and putting the cables in reasonable places.
I was also impressed with the amount of digging they did to
bury the copper plates and then returning the area to the
same condition. They had to dig in my gravel and rock borders
around the house and once they were finished I really couldn't
tell they had been there. They were both mindful of my animals
as well as the wildlife and really were respectful of my home.
And one more thing that probably only a woman would notice.
Since they were here three days, they, of course, used my
guest bathroom. I was really impressed with how clean they
kept it (read between the lines). I've had other contractors
here and usually when they leave, I feel like I'm cleaning
the bathroom at a frat house. Your workers were very considerate.
It was very much appreciated. Bottom line, they really earned
their salary on this job. If you need a reference in this
area or someone wants to see what this looks like installed,
give me a call."

is pouring outside and thunder and lightning are intense and
fierce-and guess what? Thanks to you guys, I am actually enjoying
it. What peace of mind you have given me. I can sit here unafraid

Devine, Chevlon Ranch, AZ
house was hit by lightning, causing damage (and) I called
Kevin and he came promptly to our house, surveyed the damage
and gave us a very accurate estimate. He completed the job
in a timely manner to our complete satisfaction. We have had
many storms since, and have had no problems.”
Lud and Marian Kaftan, Payson,
some of you may have heard, we (the house) had the misfortune
of being struck by lightning not once but twice this monsoon
we are all OK! The lightning struck our stove pipe and marble
hearth, twice, about 1 month apart! It did physical damage
to our home as well as psychological damage to us and to our
dogs! It was the loudest, strangest, most unpredictable, and
most terrifying event of my 40 years of life, and I vowed
at that instant (after I finished praying) to never go through
Classic Lightning Protection, an experienced and well-qualified
outfit out of Payson, Arizona. I asked them to come as soon
as they could! Here we are just 2 days later and we have a
completed system INSTALLED! They protect tons of residential,
commercial, and government structures in AZ. President Kevin
Morris and Head Installer Jon were very professional, and
knowledgeable. They did a great job and restored our "SAFE
HAVEN" to us!
and Jon left, they went to see our neighbor's home, to offer
a quote to them. Their home is still under construction. While
measuring their roof, they found a lightning-strike hole that
was recent! It turns out that lightning protection really
is important to have in our region!
the many myths that were dispelled by Kevin and Jon include:
neighbor has lightning protection so my home is safe"
"Lightning travels down from the clouds to the earth"
"Lightning never strikes the same place twice"
"People are safe inside their home during a thunderstorm
even if they do not have a lightning protection system"
"Lightning always strikes the highest point on a structure"
"My home has never been struck, so I am safe"
"Lightning rods attract more lightning strikes"
nature cannot be controlled or negotiated with. Nature is
not out to get us. Respect her. NATURE IS AWESOME.
again for a job very well done. You and Jon exceeded our expectations!
Needless to say we will be recommending you to everyone we
know. Please feel free to use my praise as a testimonial,
and my name and number as a happy customer reference!
Classic Lightning is _THE
BEST_! Best Wishes and God Bless You."
