Stormseal is a polyethylene film that heat-shrinks to securely wrap a damaged roof or structure.
Unlike tarpaulins, Stormseal stays put until permanent repairs can be made, resisting wind, rain and hail and preventing further costly damage.
This award-winning, Australian innovation helps businesses and communities to recover faster from disastrous weather.
“I would conservatively estimate that the original damage has now increased by 50% because of the inadequacy of the tarps to stay in place whenever a storm occurs.
But now thanks to Stormseal I can relax and be patient as we are fully watertight and storm proof. Stormseal has taken away our anxiety as it gives us a genuine temporary roof until the fix time.” (more…)
“I called my insurer and said I wanted Stormseal. Just two hours after the insurer approved it, the Stormseal installers were putting it on my roof. Since then, we’ve had more rain, which has been a good test. Stormseal is properly waterproof, which is a huge relief.
The weeks under tarps were very difficult for us and it’s worse for elderly people and anyone else who can’t manage the physical work of trying to cope with a leaking roof. I’m so glad we have Stormseal now, because if we had to go on under tarps it would be unbearable.
Without a doubt, our insurer should have put Stormseal on in the first place. It would have saved them many thousands of dollars by preventing all the extra damage and also saved the cost of having their builders come back again and again.
And we would have been much happier too.”
“It’s a leading innovative product… what I have seen today is going to give us the ability to be able to do it once and do it properly and not have to re-attend which will be very efficient.”
Stormseal vs Tarps
Traditionally, storm-damaged properties are covered with tarpaulins, attached with ropes and sandbags.
These tarps inevitably slip, blow off or collapse as more bad weather hits.
Over the life of an insurance claim, which can be up to 12 months after a major weather event, tarps fail five times on average and often more than 10 times. This puts your staff, customers, equipment and reputation at risk.
Make safe with Stormseal
Unlike tarps, Stormseal goes on once and stays put, resisting all weather and protecting your premises until permanent repairs are made.
This saves you the frustration of dealing with failing tarps over and over again.
In the majority of cases, Stormsealed businesses can return to work and carry on as usual until the insurance claim is settled.
