Q:How many square feet does a 5 gallon bucket cover
by|Apr 12, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Tommy, the coverage rate of Henry 287 Solar-Flex is 100 square feet per gallon. If this is the first time you are coating the roof you will need to apply two coats to the surface. Apply the second coat perpendicular to the first coat or one coat north and south and the second coat east and west.

    Q:can you use a Wagner sprayer to apply this? if so what size tip is used?
    by|Apr 11, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Robert, most paint sprayers, unless they are commercial rigs are not suited for spraying a roof coating since they are so thick. They are thick for a reason since with a roof coating you are not just putting a thin reflective covering on the roof, you are applying the product to a specific mil thickness to shield the roof from the penetrating UV rays of the sun. You would need a sprayer that can produce1,500 PSI, spray at 2 gallons per minute with a tip size of 0.30 to 0.40

      Q:Can this be applied to new Grace Ice and water shield? If not, is there another Henry product that can be applied to that substrate?
      by|Apr 6, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Brendan, Grace Ice and Water Shield is an underlayment and not the end product to the roofing surface. An actual roofing substrate must be applied as the finished product before Henry 287 Solar-Flex could be applied. Henry 287 should only be applied to AGED flat or low slope surfaces.

        Q:Will this seal pin holes
        by|Apr 4, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Butch, Henry 287 Solar-Flex is our economy grade white acrylic roof coating that is not designed for sealing pin holes. Henry 287 is formulated to reflect 85% of damaging UV rays and resists chalking, mildew and discoloration. For better weatherization you should consider our thickest white acrylic coating, Henry 587 Dura-Brite or even Henry 687 Enviro-White. For a waterproof coating you can use Henry 817 RoofGuard polyurethane coating or Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone.

          Not worth my time or money
          After a couple of weeks, the paint eroded off in San Francisco rains. Save yourself the hassle of recleaning, and use silicone sealer paint.

            Mary-Please keep in mind this coating is NOT intended to stop leaks. The white acrylic roof coatings are for reflectivity purposes only. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Company and The Home Depot.

            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.

              Waste of money
              24 hrs after application, not expecting rain, but it did rain and most of the product just ran off the roof, down the gutter and all over my driveway. White paint everywhere. It was dry to the touch last night and back to liquid state again today. It was applied to clean almost flat asphalt roll roofing, as per directions Not impressed and not sure what to do now.

              Looks nice, should save on utility bill
              After just a little practice, it applies easily and looks very nice on our double wide mobile home. Well worth the work
