Dear Home Depot Customer, it is unfortunate that you are unhappy with one of our acrylic white coatings. From your comments it is very difficult to determine the nature of your issue. Without the benefit of knowing if the product did not perform according to standards or if there was an unrealized expectation that the product did not do something that the contractor promised, we are unable to guess what went wrong with your project. All of our acrylic white coatings, Henry Solar-Flex, Dura-Brite and Enviro-White are carefully performance formulated and tested to be highly reflective, protect against damaging UV rays from the sun and cool both the roof and the interior of the building. Periodically though, someone will apply an acrylic white coating with the expectation that it will be waterproof and stop roof leaks, which it is not designed to do. We strongly recommend that you reach out to us directly at jszymanski@henry.com or call our Product Support number at 800-523-0268 so that we can discuss the poor performance issue stated by your contractor.

              Hans, it is great to see 5 stars that you awarded our acrylic white roof coating. We can't really tell from your comment which Henry acrylic coating your used. All Henry white acrylic coatings are good, better or best at emitting heat and reflecting the suns harmful UV rays that destroy a roof over time. Henry 287 Solar-Flex is warrantied for 7 years, Henry 587 Dura-Brite is warrantied for 10 years and Henry 687 Enviro-White is warrantied for 12 years and has dirt pick-up resistance so your roof coating will repell dust and dirt to stay whiter longer. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

                    First of all picking up the paint at your store was a complete disaster. I live in Montana and I am not required to pay sales tax. Your employees could not find out how to help me with this matter and it ended up costing me an extra 500.00$. This issue still has not been resolved. You make it completely impossible to address this matter on your website! Regarding the paint I purchased it was by far the dirtiest paint I have ever sprayed. I spray a lot of Henrys paint out of 5 gallon pails and have always liked it. I will never purchase this product again.

                    Phil, we are sorry to hear about your purchase experience at the Home Depot. I am not sure of what you are referring to in your statement about Henry 287 being the "dirtiest paint I have ever sprayed". Would you please reach out to us directly at jszymanski@henry.com so that we may determine what caused this problem? You can also call our tech. support line at 800-523-0268.

                      Andres, thanks for the 5 stars that you gave to our Henry white acrylic coating. Although we can't determine from your review which acrylic coating that you used, we are confident that our 7 year Solar-Flex, 10 year Dura-Brite or our 12 year Enviro-White acrylic coatings would also earn your 5 stars. Again, thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

                            I coat my roof every 2 years. In Hawaii a lot of people use water catchments for their water. The roof must be clean and this coating does a great job.

                            Louie, thanks for the very high rating for our acrylic white coatings. If you want to coat your roof one more time and never coat it again you should look into applying Henry TropiCool 887 100% Hi-solids silicone. Henry TropiCool is waterproof and has a lifetime warranty. TropiCool is also rated for catchment systems. It has been tested and certified by NSF International in accordance with NSF ProtocolP151. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

                                    I bought this product because my deck supports were failing. I put down plywood and many coats of this product over the top of the plywood along with some other products. It will give me many more years of life to my deck. The stuff is bullet proof! I am happy with it.

                                    Jane, thank you for the 5 stars and review of one of our Henry White Elastomeric Roof Coatings. While we don't recommend applying a roof coating directly to wood we are happy that it worked for your project. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

All of our Henry White Acrylic coatings are easy to use and highly reflective from Solar-Flex with a 7 year warranty, Dura-Brite with a 10 year warranty or EnviroWhite with a 12 year warranty and Dirt-Pick-Up-Resistance. Whichever white coating you apply we are confident that you will be 100% satisfied with their performance. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

We can't tell which of the Henry acrylics you used, Solar-Flex with a 7 year warranty, Dura-Brite with a 10 year warranty or Enviro-White with a 12 year warranty. All of our acrylic coatings are excellent products to protect the roof and reduce the interior temperatures. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

                                    I highly recommend this product, I purchased a 34ft 5th wheel camper and was told the roof had just been resealed but of course it hadn't. I put on 3 coats and a couple days later we had a downpour it held up perfectly, I have enough left to apply a couple more coats.

                                    Jim, gee we love to see 5 star reviews because that means one more 100% satisfied customer we have. I can't tell from this posting which of our Acrylic White coatings that you used so I am unable to comment on a specific one. The important thing is that you are more than happy with how your Henry coating project turned out. Thanks again for the great review and for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.
