What is Stormseal?

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 distress and costly damage.

This award-winning, Australian innovation has now protected more than 9,000 buildings globally and helps businesses and communities recover faster after disastrous weather.

Stormseal for homeowners

Ryan, Berowra NSW, 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.”

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.”

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.”

Why we created Stormseal

Traditionally, storm-damaged houses have been covered with large tarpaulins until the insurance claim is settled and final repairs are made. The problem is that 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 means continual tarp replacements, additional time and cost and further damage to the property, not to mention stress to the owner and occupants.

Stormseal doesn’t have this problem – it goes on once and stays on, no matter how long the insurance claim process lasts.

Stormseal is:

  • 100% watertight
  • Resistant to future storms including heavy hail and winds up to 160km/h
  • Long lasting (see how it held up in a test at the top of the Swiss Alps)
  • UV resistant and fire retardant
  • Designed and manufactured in Australia to world class standards
  • Easily removed for roof inspections when needed

Matt Lennox, an experienced insurance builder, has witnessed the harmful impact of tarps too many times, including storm-damaged properties whose damages have increased 5-fold due to tarp failures. For example tarps came off a Berowra Heights home 11 times, escalating the claim from $50K to $285K.
