        Drys slow. Any moisture even night dew can make product not adhere and peel. It’s ok if it’s over 70 degrees in the direct sun

            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.

                                  While we are not sure which of our Henry White Elastomeric Reflective coatings you used we appreciate the nice review.

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.

                                  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.

                                  This DOES NOT seal out moisture
                                  Read the label. This only acts as a reflective coating. After using this for a few year we tried the real stuff, but ended up putting a metal roof on. Basically we threw away $1000 on this stuff that doesn't seal out moisture.

                                  Pablo, we really hate to see a customer that did not have a great experience with a Henry product. You are absolutely right that Acrylic roof coatings are not waterproof. The exception is Henry 687 Acrylic coating when used as a system with Henry 107 Asphalt Emulsion and is the only waterproof acrylic system that Henry offers. But for the most part Acrylic white coatings are for reflecting heat and Ultra Violet light away from the roof. If you need a restoration product that is waterproof then the answer is Henry TropiCool 100% hi-solids silicone that is an exclusive product of the Home Depot.
