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.

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Sally, Berowra NSW, Homeowner

“I called my insurer and said I wanted Stormseal. Just two hours after the insurer approved it, the Stormseal installers were putting it on my roof. Since then, we’ve had more rain, which has been a good test. Stormseal is properly waterproof, which is a huge relief. (more…)
