Insurers to benefit from builders training
Sydney-based Stormseal has partnered up with Pinnacle Safety and Training to offer builders a unique opportunity to expand their services by becoming certified installers and providers of Stormseal™.

Stormseal™ is a state-of-the-art patented material that heat seals damaged roofs or exposed wall spaces against wind and water. It can provide cover for up to two years until repairs to the house can be made, saving insurance companies costs and keeping policyholders safe and secure.

Matthew Lennox, Stormseal founder and managing director, said: “We believe Stormseal™ will revolutionise the way builders cover a house that is waiting for repair following a big storm or during construction, using a method that allows residents to stay in the house because it is a water- and wind-tight system, whilst providing protection from further damage if storms continue.”

“By installing a product that guarantees property protection from further storm damage aids all parties, particularly the insurer which is in turn protected from having to pay out more if a tarpaulin flies away and further damage occurs.  Importantly it reduces trauma for the resident knowing they can either stay in the house or no further water and wind damage can occur.”

The training course, that provide 10 continuing professional development hours for builders, will educate builders on how to install Stormseal as well as related building skill required. It is open to builders that have completed a working safely at heights (RIIWHS204D) course.
Builders who have completed the course will receive a Statement of Attainment nationally recognized under the Australian Qualifications Framework. They will also receive a certificate and wallet card stating “Stormseal™ Accredited Installer” to prove to clients they are fully trained.

The program is recommended to group company bookings with a minimum of six to eight people. For more information, visit: or call 1300 990 810.
