Stormseal Protective Film
Stormseal is touted as a "game-changing storm response solution that provides a robust protection to homes and buildings until permanent repairs can be made." It is a strong polyethylene film that heat-shrinks to cover a damaged structure and stays put for up to 12 months; it protects the home or building from future storms, high winds and hail. When Stormseal is installed on a damaged roof or wall, the heat application shrinks the film tightly to the structure, enhancing its strength and ensuring a perfect fit without damaging any underlying materials.
