Roof Tarps & Coverings for Emergency Roofing
Stormseal Roof Coverings
Orlando, Florida, sees more than its fair share of storms, particularly dangerous hurricanes with high winds that can wreak havoc with roofs. Roofing Pioneers is a top roofing repair company in Orlando, and one type of emergency roofing we use for temporary roof repair is Stormseal.
Stormseal is a revolutionary kind of temporary roofing that provides the security homeowners and business owners need when they have to wait for roof repairs.
Temporary Roof Repair in Orlando
No doubt about it, roof repair in Orlando is an emergency. But the problem is, frequently everyone has the same emergency at the same time. When a ferocious hurricane hits the Sunshine State, it does damage far and wide, and it’s not possible for roofing companies to repair them all within a few days — or even sometimes weeks or months, depending on the extent of the damage.
After a storm comes through and rips off or damages a roof, that building is left vulnerable to the elements. If it rains again before the roof is repaired, the extent of the damage could be much greater than if the building had been properly protected with a roof covering.
Not only that, but an insecure roof could allow access to local critters looking for a place to take shelter. Squirrels, raccoons, bats and even opossums and rats can take up residence in a building with holes in the roof.
Stormseal Outperforms Roof Tarps
Previously, roofers used roof tarps to secure storm-damaged roofs until repairs could be made. While tarps are heavy and waterproof, they can be difficult to secure snugly and are vulnerable to high winds.
Stormseal, on the other hand, clings snugly to a roof like shrink wrap. It’s heavy duty like tarp, but can withstand winds up to 150 mph, which makes it effective against most tornadoes and hurricanes. A roof tarp would be nearly useless in these situations.
Snug-fitting Stormseal roofing was invented in Australia after a particularly devastating hailstorm struck Sydney. The product was developed by an insurance adjuster who saw claims quadruple in the months after the storm due to roof tarps that failed to stay put through subsequent rainstorms.
