In Swiss storms, Stormseal shows its strength

In June 2018, to test Stormseal’s weather resistance under the most extreme natural conditions it was installed on the roof of a hut high in the Swiss Alps. ‘Over several weeks, the wind speed average was over 100 km/h [62 miles/h] and some days up to 200 km/h [124 miles/h]. At the end of January, after many storms, the Stormseal film was still looking good.

Testimonials

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

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.”

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!”

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!”

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.”

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!”
