In June 2018, to test Stormseal’s weather resistance under the most extreme natural conditions it was installed on the roof of a hut high in the Swiss Alps. Over several weeks, the wind speed average was over 100 km/h [62 miles/h] and some days up to 200 km/h [124 miles/h]. At the end of January, after many storms, the Stormseal film was still looking good. (more…)

“Stormseal’s great for our reputation, which is good for business: our turnover has increased by 33% in the past year.
Residents love our work with Stormseal so, more often than not, they get us to quote for their permanent roof repairs too, once their insurance claim is paid. We get more leads and win more jobs because we’ve earned their trust, and they recommend us to others.” (more…)
Wilfred’s home, like many others damaged by the October 2018 storm, was given the standard ‘protection’ of a tarp to cover the gaping holes in his roof.
After having his home secured with Stormseal Wilfred noticed an immediate difference. “This is just a different kettle of fish. There’s no noise. There’s no anything. There’s no way in the world any water’s going to get in that. And it looks good. I should get the whole roof covered instead of the tiles.” (more…)
“My insurer sent builders to install a tarp the next day, but it was hopeless,” said Marg after a catastrophic hailstorm hit her home. “It kept slipping and flapping and broken tiles kept crashing down, going off like bombs. I couldn’t sleep, and my dog was going crazy. Then my neighbour told me about Stormseal. All the roofers have seen it on her house and they’ve all said that its’ fantastic.” (more…)

A massive storm hit the home of Todd and Jo Chapman just before Christmas. “It was frustrating because the insurers kept having to get contractors back to make safe the house again, but they just kept blowing away, letting the rain in,” said Todd. “I would conservatively estimate that the original damage has now increased by 50%.” (more…)
For Ryan and Chey Johnson, the happy arrival of their second child was sadly offset by the devastating damage to their Berowra home caused by the December 2018 hailstorm.
‘After the hail wrecked the roof, the wind and rain came,’ said Ryan.
97% of Berowra homes damaged by the hailstorm were ‘made safe’ with tarpaulins, many of which have since failed multiple times. (more…)
‘I teamed up with three other business partners to set up the roof division of Abereum Roofing & Plumbing a short while ago and it’s taken off, mostly thanks to Stormseal,’ says Mitchell Clarke.
‘We started with just two guys, but I’ve taken on another four already to meet the demand, and I’ll be putting eight more through the Stormseal installer training in the next month. (more…)
