I want to apply to the floor of my terrace that is actually a flat roof over my kitchen. I keep a lounger and chair on it for sitting outside. Will having furniture on it cause damage to the coating? Does it dry hard or soft like an EPDM rubber roof?

Answer: 
Not recommended for foot traffic or having furniture on. It can handle some light foot traffic, such as doing a yearly roof check or have to do some roof maintenance.

Walking on it is not a problem, the main thing to remember is this is a roofing material and not intended to be walked on constantly as is any roofing.

Answer: 
Yes you can walk on it. If you are going to put furniture on it I would suggest putting casters under any furniture as you could damage it. It is a flexible roofing but drys to a semi hard material.

Hmmm. If you must, use three coats with a day between them, and maybe get some outdoor carpet for heavily travelled areas. Put coasters under the hard feet of the furniture. Dries to medium hardness with some flexibility, flat finish.

I think it will depend greatly on the surface you put it on. I put it on an old residential flat concrete roof with a lot of small pits and a few small cracks (no obvious leaking inside the house). Had to use a brush because the roller wanted to slide more than roll. The second coat will obviously need a less lot of the roof coating.

The roof in question was replaced a few years ago, but the roofing company didn't replace the roofing that extends up the parapet walls. Now water is finding its way in. Will this product fill and seal minor leaks where the flat roof meets the parapet walls and on the walls themselves? If not, does HD sell a product that serves this purpose that can then be coated with white solar-flex?

I think it can, but I wouldn't do it. It seems to seal most of the cracks that I had around my sky lights very handily, but you have to be honest with yourself, in terms of judging the phenomenon to be cracks or separations. I have a similar roofing situation, but I have rubberized roofing running up the parapet. I think you would be better off if you did that by overlapping the current roofing at the bottom, especially, if you think there are separations. Roofing tends to shrink and separations do occur. I realize this is half an answer, but you probably could go either way, it is just that one would be a longer term fix. Go for the longer term, for yourself and whomever follows. The cracks would only open up again. Read Less

I had gotten some water base roofing material before and it took 30 days for it to dry before water could be on it.
I need something to dry quickly before it rains, our weather has been odd this year with more rain than we had last winter.

Answer: 
It will depend on the surface you paint it on and weather conditions. I put some on a flat concrete roof, old and with a lot of small pits and a few small cracks. Ended up using a brush because the roller wanted to slide more than roll, and could not fill the pits. After brushing it on thinly, it was dry to the touch in two hours. This is at about 90 degrees F and 58 percent relative humidity.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good 2 coats for my 2 cars garage. More than enough. Waiting for the Big Rain! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as Advertised! I have central air in my mobile home, but the air conditioner couldn't cool the inside to a temperature that was cooler than the outdoor temperature without running continuously. I applied Henry's 287 to the roof of my mobile home today and for the first time this summer, the inside of my mobile home is cooler than the outside temperature! My air conditioner is running much less and the mobile home stays cool. Only time will tell if the product will last the advertised 7 years, but at this point, i have no reason to doubt that claim. Had I known this product worked, I probably would've used Henry's 887, which has a lifetime warranty. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this stuff works. before i applied it the to roof of our company you could not even touch the corrugated steel roof for even a full second without burning your hand on a hot august summer day. we could not keep the second floor offices cool during noon, employees were complaining every day. So after i applied the treatment it made a huge difference. I sprayed the whole roof 3 coats with a hopper texture sprayer. its been 7 yrs and still stays cool. I had to do repair an ac unit on the roof in middle of august and i could comfortably sit or place my hands on the roof without burning my hands or as. its has luke warm temperature feel to it. its amazing I had my doubts at first but were cooled away. it does wash off a bit at first but still works very good. i sprayed pretty thick fyi September 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to apply. Working great Product goes on easily. Standing up to constant heat and rain here on the island. August 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NOT lasting 7 years! Applied 2 years ago on a hot and sunny summer day. No rain for at least 4 days afterwards. First rain and a lot washed off. Initially it was still enough coating to effectively cool down the attic. Most of it is gone by now. Some spots look like there was never any coating and this after the 2 coats applied by me. If you have a small RV roof it might be ok to paint every year but not worth for a house. Applied on 'normal' roof shingles that were clean and dry. June 22, 2016
