Donohue's Lightning Rods

The modern suburban and small town home of today has become an ideal lightning target. The home owner would do well to recognize lightning for the destructive force that it is and protect against this major life and fire hazard. Donohue's Lightning Rods is based in Missouri, near the factory where most of the residential and commercial lightning rod supplies are manufactured. Jim travels regularly to Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New York. Call today to find out when Jim will be in your area. For installations outside Missouri, Kansas, or Texas, Jim waits until there are a few customers lined up, thus being able to provide the same quality services at affordable prices. WE DO NOT DO ELECTRICAL SERVICES.

Review by in Broussard, LA
Seamus Donohue was a man who knew his subject - lightning. He came to our home quickly, and scheduled installation immediately after we made a decision. The men who came to do the installation were professional, careful and took time to make sure the results were as "invisible" as possible. We hope never to have a lightning strike again at our home, but as the weather patterns change, we fear that is more possible than in the past. We feel more protected after our lightning protection installation. But you never know how successful something is if the proof is in something never happening! But we'll take it.

Review by in Frisco, TX
Jim for Donhohues Lightning Rods installed the lightning rod system in my home. When the work was done I was very happy as their installer came as per promised time, and perform the work. Before giving them the work Jim completely sold me their work ethics, quality, and service. There was a minor issue and his team took complete ownership of this issue and talked to me in detail. They provide a very good explanation to satisfy me. I am a happy customer.

Great people. Very experienced. They specialize in lighting rods - it's not a side gig for them. They did my home and my workshop building and finished in one day.

We were contacted immediately regarding adding a lightning protection system on our home. Seamus was very thorough and knowledgeable regarding our concerns. He and his crew showed up and were very professional and efficient. We are very pleased with the installation and highly recommend Donahue’s.

Review by in Springfield, MO
Through a thorough investigation I found that there are few people in the United States who know how to properly install lightning rods. The grounding is essential for it to be effective. There are some companies who think they know how to install a lightning rod system, seem very cost effective, but take the time to find out exactly what they plan to do on your building. Seamus Donohue has been in the business for years, is well known and respected by the premier supplier in Missouri of lightning rod supplies, goes all over the country and does excellent work with very pleasant employees. We would recommend this company to anyone who feels the need to get lightning rods for a building. Little trivia--1 in every 200 homes will be hit by lightning this years AND lightning does strike twice in the same place!

Review by in Burnet, TX
Within minutes after submitting an inquiry, Seamus contacted me to find out specifics of my project and although he provided an estimate, he was receptive to coming out for a site visit before I committed. Edward came for the preliminary site visit and afterwards, I accepted their proposal. Cliff, the installer, communicated with me with scheduling and was very professional and easy deal with. Edward performed an inspection after install to make sure everything was done properly. The people representing this company seem very knowledgeable about their work and is backed up by generations of experience.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
