In Swiss storms, Stormseal shows its strength

Testimonials

Putting a smile on the face of a previously traumatised victim of extreme weather is a huge reward for Stormseal installers.

Ryan Hage, Adelaide All-Trades (AAT)

“We pride ourselves on using cutting edge technology to rapidly make properties safe and restore clients’ peace of mind. As soon as I heard about Stormseal, I knew we should be using it. Stormseal is a fantastic product that we will use after storms and other damaging events. It’s especially good in difficult access situations. The best thing is that it stays put – we won’t have to go back to fix any more flapping or leaking tarps.”

Doug Hasty, Orlando Group Roofing

Our goal of growing and improving as a company is to better serve our neighbors in Texas and Oklahoma.

Ryan, Homeowner

“I was sick and tired of having to fix the tarps again and again. In the month after the storm, I was up there five times to fix the tarps, because of the wind. When I heard about Stormseal, I immediately asked our insurer to replace the tarps with it.

Stormseal is perfect because once it’s installed you don’t have to go back up there, and you’ve got peace of mind that if rains, no water is going to come in.”

Todd, Homeowner

“Stormseal has been described like a shower cap for your house, it tucks under the eaves and gutters, so seals underneath, just like your hair under the elastic of the cap. I like that metaphor, it really works like this!.

Tarps only work until you need them – they just look like they’re doing something when their over your house, but when the storm comes they fail. I like my new orange, temporary roof, which I know won’t blow away and doesn’t leak!”

Dan and Cindy O’Connell, Mexico Beach, Homeowner

“Homeowners and insurance companies need to know about this product. It has really has helped us in a time of need and given us peace of mind that our home is protected. The house has remained dry inside and the Stormseal still looks the same. Most of the tarps in the area have either blown off or been replaced a number of times.” Read more.

Sally, Homeowner

“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.”
