The importance of using a reliable and functional waterproofing exterior is incredibly paramount when your property is susceptible to the elements after a violent storm. Tarps are widely used to cover storm damaged properties until insurance claims are settled and final repairs are made, which can take up to 12 months at times. However, most insurance companies do not qualify tarps as an adequate roof covering or part of the insured structure and can deny coverage to personal property in some cases. Tarps are also infamous for coming undone because of sandbags sliding off, the weight of collecting water or simply because of strong winds. Property owners face constant stress and uncertainty and are known to have to constantly adjust, re- secure or replace the tarp covering. When they are not covering the building, additional damage is liable to occur and can prolong the already protracted process. Some other possibilities can include, rips, leaks, UV breakdown and condensation. Stormseal is an award winning product that is installed once by accredited contractors, lasting without compromise until permanent repairs are made. All of the reasons as to why tarps are insufficient are addressed and solved with Stormseal.
