Testimonials

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

David Wilson, Head of Innovation, HomeRepair

“For years we have had massive problems with tarps on roofs – they blow off and there is nothing worse, I believe, than being in a house with tarp on the roof and all night it’s flapping and banging and carrying on and we get water entry… Stormseal takes us into the next century… we’re very excited about it… From a customer experience it just puts us way ahead of the competition.”

Todd & Jo Chapman, Homeowner

“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…)

Craig White, National Manager of Event Response, Suncorp

“I definitely see a place for Stormseal in our natural hazard strategy. When we want to get customers back into their home, having something that keeps their home watertight is paramount, so we can progress with their claim.”

Andrew Whitehurst, Pegasus Roofing

“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. I’d always prefer to use Stormseal than tarps, because I can take pride in my work and we get more work as a result.”

Wilfred, Homeowner

“Stormseal 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.”

Tom Dougherty, National Manager for HomeClaims Customer Support, Suncorp

“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.”
