When you’re stuck in a rural area with no cell service, it can be frustrating and, at times, dangerous. A cell signal booster can provide a useable signal to most who use them. They use a system of antennas and relays to provide a signal that is strong and effective. An installation professional can simply install the booster antenna to your roofing system for optimal reception. Roof materials like Duro-Last roofing not only provide great protection for your home, but also offer a firm material for your booster equipment.
Times When a Signal Booster Won’t Help
In some cases, a cell signal booster won’t work. A cell booster doesn’t create a signal, but instead, boosts an already present signal. Therefore, if a signal doesn’t exist or is too scrambled, a cell phone booster will not help your situation.
Some of these obstacles include:
- No Signal: If there is no signal to boost, a cell signal booster will not be helpful.
- Tall Buildings and Structures: Multiple tall buildings can inhibit a cell signal from reaching your location which is crucial for a cell booster to work.
- No Place for an Antenna: Cell booster antennas can be placed on your roof or even on a window sill. However, if you have an inside apartment or otherwise blocked home, an antenna cannot be installed properly.
- Other Carrier Interference: Even if your cell service carrier has a nearby tower, other carrier towers that are in between it and your location can cause a cell booster to boost the incorrect signal.
