Stormseal cuts costs of catastrophe and construction

On 17 November 2019, high wind and hailstones up to 7.7cm in diameter pummelled Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Two days later, the Insurance Council of Australia declared the storm a catastrophe. The ultimate damage bill was around $115M. Bob Chilton was contracted by an insurance company to ‘make safe’ damaged properties, but as his crew from…

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.

Testimonials

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

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.”

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…)

Kumar Fernando, Canberra ACT, Homeowner

“Very customer focused, friendly and helpful. Snug across the roof, excellent job. One of them, even cleaned out glass and debris out of the yard, that wasn’t part of the roof or the job they did. Well done guys!”

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!”

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.”

Bob Chilton, Cedar Roofing

“Stormseal is awesome because it’s quick to install and you never have to go back. With tarps, you’re returning every few days to reattach them, and you find more damage every time. Insurance bills go through the roof–literally! With Stormseal, once you’ve prepped, you can cover a large house in a few hours, the damage stops, and you won’t need to come back, so it’s a massive time-and-money-saver.”

“It’s a no-brainer: during construction or after a storm, tarps won’t protect your home and family like Stormseal. Stormseal is safer for property owners and residents, it’s cost-effective for insurers, and it’s good for my business.”
