Stormseal: The temporary roofing choice for Insurance Builders.

Social media sent Stormseal to New Zealand, to solve a serious problem

‘My mate swore by it, said it was a great product. I trust him as a straight talker, and I thought Stormseal could solve a big problem in my industry, so I decided to follow it up,’ said Shane. Shane sees big opportunities to use Stormseal to improve customer experience and grow his business, firstly in asbestos removal/re-roofing, and secondly in roof repairs after severe storms or earthquakes.

Year-long Protection for Graduate House at ANU

The leaking roofs resulted in water damaged rooms on the top floor and some students needed to be relocated. We initially threw some tarps up, but they were inadequate, and couldn’t cover the whole roof. Because it was an older building, the same roof tiles weren’t available anymore, so we knew we needed a long-term solution. Luckily, we heard about Stormseal through a roofer.

Blow-away Tarps Blow Out Insurance Claims

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.

Berowra Hailstorm

In December 2018, a devastating hailstorm damaged 33,000 properties in northern Sydney. Berowra was one of the worst-hit suburbs. The storm damage bill rose from $75 million to $1 billion due repeated failures of tarps and other ‘make-safes’. When Stormseal was installed, residents were hugely relieved, with some homes still being protected 16 months later.

Testimonials

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

Shane Blakely, Roofpro, New Zealand

“Using Stormseal myself, seeing how it went taut and fitted perfectly to the frame when heated, and feeling just how strong it was, I realised that it was an even better product than it had looked online.”

“‘Stormseal is the solution. Uniquely, Roofpro manages the whole process: we’ll remove the asbestos, we’ll protect the property until it’s certified, and then we’ll rebuild the roof. By offering the whole package and using premium-quality Stormseal, we have a cost-effective service that’s highly competitive and gives our customers total peace of mind.” (more…)

David, Berowra NSW, Homeowner

“Once Stormseal was on though we felt secure and protected, there has been no elements getting in since. We feel lucky that our insurer took swift action and had Stormseal on before New Year, which unfortunately was not the case for some neighbours who still have holes in their roofs 11 weeks later. One lady who is 86 and lives alone, has had her tarps fly off numerous times and is still awaiting repairs, it’s sad to see.

I do feel secure with Stormseal installed and a lot of the neighbours with damage have asked me about my new orange roof.

So many people have had to have their tarps refitted many times but with Stormseal you know once it’s up it’s there to stay – tarps and Stormseal are truly like chalk and cheese!”

Todd & Jo Chapman, Berowra NSW, 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…)

Wilfred, Buff Point NSW, 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.”

Todd, Berowra NSW, 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!”
