Asked by chris June 6, 2021

Answers

Chris, the answer is no this is not the product that you want to seal screw heads. Acrylic roof coatings are mainly to reflect the sun's harmful UV light and heat. If you want to seal the screw gaskets the best bet is Henry 885 Seam Sealant and then coat with Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Hi-solids silicone. Henry 885 and 887 not only reflect the heat and sunlight but are both waterproof and last a lifetime. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

Answers

Basspig, I stated in an earlier answer that you should test Henry 887 TropiCool on your roof to test the adhesion. Any acrylic coating will most certainly not stick to an EPDM surface and will be a waste of time and money. Please check my earlier answer for best practices for this project.

Can i apply this material over wood?? Also can i paint over if desided

Asked by Sandro June 2, 2021
2
Answers

Sandro. Applying Henry Acrylic white coating won't hurt the wood but we don't recommend that application. Henry White coatings are designed to be applied to regular roof substrates like roll roofing or torch down. Wood has additional movement issues than regular roof substrates. Wood swells and shrinks with the humidity and rain. Most products applied to wood are done with staples or large headed nails so that the felt paper can sustain a slight movement from the wood without tearing. It is for those reasons that we would not suggest coating wood with an acrylic coating.

Can it be tinted?

Asked by Papu April 20, 2021
2
Answers

Papu, traditionally we do not recommend tinting our acrylic products as it will void the warranty. I have heard of some customers tinting the product but I am not sure of what the make up of the tinting product is and how compatible it is with the coating. Thank you for your trust in Henry products and the Home Depot.

How many square feet does each 5 gallon cover?

Asked by Cesar February 17, 2021
1
Answer

Cesar, generally a 4.75 Gallon bucket will cover about 500 square feet. However you will need to take into account the "thirst" of the roof surface. It depends on the age of the roof surface or if it has a smooth or granulated surface. The first time you apply an acrylic you must do two coats, one applied east and west and the second applied north and south for example.

Can it be applied on concrete surfaces?

Asked by Jay November 19, 2020

Answers

Yes, it can. Just be sure the concrete is very dry and as clean as you can make it. If it's really troweled smooth, then not a bad idea to wire brush the surface prior to application if you can.

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.

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.

Does the job.
I have a rubberized roof and the initial coating wore off a long time ago,. The roof was long over due for some kind of treatment. I chose this coating, the SOLARFLEX WHITE ROOF COATING, based on several of the reviews. It seemed to work in terms of reducing the internal temperature of the rooms, so I thought I would give it a try and I'm very glad I did. Not only does it work but it was a breeze to apply. I used a roller with a 3/4" nap. If you just follow directions and realize you do not have to be able to eat off the roof in terms of cleanliness, you will do a great job. You might have a question in your own mind in terms of coverage, but the coverage is excellent. I did 3 coats on 1000 sq ft and used about 10.5 gallons, two pales worth and some from a third. If you lay it on thick, as you go, you might be able to get away with doing 2 coats, but I took it easy, not knowing what kind of coverage I was going to get. The rooms are definitely cooler and I feel I extended my roof life in the process, which makes it an excellent product in terms of usefulness and value. By the way, I never had to mix it, which was a bonus and it took about 1.5 hours per 500 sq ft to apply the first coat and about 1 hour to apply each of the last 2 coats. You can easily do 2 coats in a day. For your own sake, don't do it in the middle of the day, though.
