Can I use this to seal holes left by a satellite dish bolts?

Asked by DIYer June 7, 2021
2
Answers

DIYer, yes you can absolutely use Henry 885 to patch the holes left by the satellite dish bolts. You can also use Henry 900 Flashing Sealant and construction adhesive. Either one will work well for your project. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

Asked by miket71 May 21, 2021

Answer

Miket71, if the water reservoir is dry and clean and you can let the Henry 885 cure for 48 hours before filling, then yes you can use it for this type of repair. This is an unusual question since Henry 885 is a roofing repair product but can also be used in this instance too. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

Asked by FirstTimeRepairGuy May 2, 2021

Answer

FirstTimeRepairGuy, there could be many solutions to your roofing problem. The easiest way to fix this would be to use Henry 208R to fill the seam, see if you can fold over the seam and place a 2 x 4 over the length of the seam area and add weight on it to hold it down for at least 30 days. You can then coat over the seam with Henry 885 seam sealer and let cure for 48 hours. At that time you can coat the roof with Henry TropiCool 100% hi-solids silicone. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

Can I use this product in shingle roof

Asked by Betty May 1, 2021
1
Answer

Betty, the best products to use on shingles are Henry 208R, 209XR or Henry 212 Clear Patch. These are asphaltic or thermoplastic products that are very compatible with composition shingles. Henry 885 Seam and repair roof sealant will also work but it will be a white patch. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

BC73, yes, Henry 885 can be applied to the Dicor patch as long as it is clean. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

Is there a way to paint over this product?

Asked by Hopeful April 15, 2021
1
Answer

Hopeful, unfortunately silicone is not usually a product that paint will stick to. Henry 885 is one of those products that almost nothing will adhere to except another Henry silicone. We do have Henry 880 Stop Leak that comes in black that would adhere. Thank you for putting your trust in Henry products and the Home Depot.

Can this product be used to seal cracks in stucco parapets on my roof?

Asked by Joe April 7, 2021
1
Answer

Joe, you could use TropiCool 885 to seal cracks in the stucco. You can also use Henry 900 Construction Adhesive and Sealant. Henry 900 might be the best bet for this project since it is a little more specific for cement and stucco applications. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

Can I use on my exterior wall for waterproof? My wall half concrete and half wood

Asked by Ling February 9, 2021
1
Answer

Ling, if your question is that you want to coat the whole wall with 885 TropiCool Seam Repair and Roof sealant I would say we don't recommend it and we don't warranty that application. If you have cracks and splits in the concrete and wood I would suggest you use Henry 900 Flashing and construction sealant. 900 is a product that is used when you are sealing dissimilar surfaces together because they have differing expansion and contraction rates. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co. and the Home Depot.

My parents have an old mobile home in Arizona, with a metal roof, that developed leaks. This stuff worked amazing!! It fixed the seams that had leaks, it fixed gaps from prior metal repairs, even large 1" gaps, when nothing else would work. I would scoop some of this out, spread it to the thickness I wanted, then use a stiff brush to make a smooth finishing texture. I highly recommend this for metal roof repairs! So thankful that my parents no longer have leaks after repairing their roof with this.

This is an excellent sealer. I used it to seal up my leaking camper roof in place of the standard Dicor sealant. Removed old Dicor and applied this with a silicone spatula. Its very thick and sets up very fast and you have to work with a small amount in a separate container and also don't leave the gallon can open at all or it will set up in the can. This is my second gallon so I can finish sealing around the edges of my camper roof. I'm sure it works great on all roofs.

I used this product to seal around the skylights and fans on my camper, prior to coating the entire roof with the Tropi-cool 887 roof coating the next day. Goes on like putty - I used a 1 inch putty knife to apply and a 3 inch putty knife to smooth it then. Dries quickly and definitely seems like it will withstand the elements.

Great sealant we will know with time, being silicone it should last..use it to cover seams on a mobile home. You can't use a brush ..I used a spatula and a plastic cooking spoon to spread the product. Its thick but manageable. The caulking tubes might have been easier to apply. I follow up using the the tropic 100% silicone roof coating needed 3 4.75 gal. Cans. I power wash the roof and the application went smooth . Product was thick needed only one coat. The roof was 1100 sq. Ft

great product
Used a putty knife to apply the product to all seams and leaks. very easy to do. it is a little thick but it needs to be. Patched up my shed roof and my aluminum porch roof. Then applied the Henry Slicone coat after waiting one day. Both roofs look great and no leaks. Worked great.

This product is very thick and applied like bondo. It was very similar to the asphalt product that henry's sells but much more creamy and smooth. It is best used with a trowel or spatula as it is much too thick for a brush. I used this to repair protrusions before applying the tropicool sealant product that was also silicone based. I like the warranty and company, Very good product.

I used this product to seal a roof seam separation where the rubber roof met the fiberglass front panel. I stay in my RV for work during the week and and go home on the weekends. This particular weekend the forecast was for heavy rain. I installed this late Friday afternoon using Nitrile gloves and 4" Chip brushes. I used the gloves to scoop it out of the can and spread it across the seam and used the chip brush to "feather" it about 3-4 inches on both sides. If you had seen what it looked like before I applied it, you'd be amazed at how well this stuff worked. It rained 2-3 inches in two days and when I returned Sunday night-my RV was completely dry! NOT ONE SINGLE DROP! I read the reviews about people complaining that you can't use a brush or roller to apply it and yes, that is somewhat true. Just use Nitrile gloves and cheapie Chip brushes and you'll be fine. I'm no professional RV repairman but if you want to patch a leak or rubber roof seam, this is the BOMB! Don't mess around with tubes of caulking or anything else. I tried Rubber tape (@$3.79/foot) and it didn't last 2 miles down the highway before it was flapping in the wind. I feel very confident this stuff will last while towing the trailer. It is worth every single penny I paid! Thank you Henry for such an amazing product!

Difficult to use
This stuff is advertised as a liquid that can be applied with a roller or a brush. And guaranteed for life. The first gallon I received was thick like putty and could not have been applied with anything but a heavy duty putty knife. So I returned it and assumed it was an outdated can. Ordered another one. Same stuff. So I got my heavy duty putty knife and got to work. It applied like putty only not as smooth. It's rough looking and did not smooth out. If this 66 Kit trailer was a restoration I would have never used this stuff. It's not. It's a beat up old unit that I wanted the best sealer available and this stuff is that if nothing else. Once applied and cured overnight it wasn't coming loose no matter what I tried. So 1/3 0f the product is now junk and in the trash can as it's unusable once the can opens. If you decide to use it, be prepared and get right to work as within an hour it will stiffen up enough that you'll be cussing it.
