Henry 885 is the premium silicone seam and repair roof sealant. Henry 885 is 100% silicone and is not affected by the sun, is able to withstand the stresses of expansion and contraction that the roof goes through every day. Henry 885 is also the most compatible product to use when you intend to coat your roof with Henry 887 100% Silicone Roof Coating. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

Marilou, we really love to see comments like yours. Henry 885 is a great product to seal holes, splits, cuts, tears, seams etc. on a roof. It provides a very tough silicone waterproof seal that will last of many years. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

Patio roof
Only feedback I can share and why I gave it 4 stars. It was hard to spread across the panels on top of the roof. It dried out very fast as I did not use it all at once. I found the tubes to work better leave it in the sun for a little bit and it flows a lot better.

Ruth, Henry 885 is a rather unique patching product, especially in the way it cures. Henry 885 is a 100% silicone sealant that cures by pulling moisture out of the air as opposed to the evaporative process like most paints and acrylic coatings. This process provides a much tighter bond to the surface but like you said it wants to start curing fairly quickly, especially if you leave the lid off the can. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

We regret that you had an issue with Henry 885 TropiCool 100% Silicone Seam and Repair Sealant. Henry 885 is a repair sealant and should be the consistency of a paste or a, (mastic) and not a liquid. Henry 885 is made to a specific thickness to make it full-bodied enough to bridge gaps and seal seams, holes, cracks and splits. If the sealer was in a liquid form it would be unable to perform properly. A comparison would be if a caulk came out of the tube as a liquid, it would not stay in the gap that you were trying to fill.

We are very sorry to hear about your difficulty with the application of Henry 885 Silicone Seam and Repair Roof Sealant. Henry 885 should be the consistency of cake frosting. If it is difficult to spread it may have had the lid opened or it may have not been rotated properly. We urge you to contact us directly at jszymanski@henry.com or our Product Support number 800-523-0268 so that we can determine and correct the problem.

Mike, we get your hint at the retail cost of Henry TropiCool. Henry, along with Home Depot continue to work very hard to keep the price of Henry 885 Seam and repair Roof Sealant down. Unfortunately, the recent increases in cost and availability of raw materials, as well as freight, transportation and fuel have given rise to increased prices to just about all other products as well. We love your comment "worth every penny", which sounds a lot like...the value still far exceeds the price! Thank you for your very high rating, your short but to the point comments and for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

I spent so much money trying to stop my 30 yr old camper roof from leaking. Then I finally tried this stuff and it's the best product I have ever used hands down. My roof hasn't leaked in over 3 yrs .

SCinSC2, isn't it satisfying to finally find a real solution to a problem that has plagued you for years. Judging from your comments it sounds like you found a great sense of relief once you applied Henry TropiCool 885 Seam and Repair Sealant. Relief from the worry about constant leaks and relief from the constant spending to try and find the right solution to your leak problems. Henry 885 is an amazing product with terrific adhesive power and is not affected by the sun's damaging UV rays. We love your endorsement of Henry 885 and the five stars you awarded it. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

    Strange you asked about this product and not the other one Henry887 5 gallon drum. Henry Tropi Cool worked well. The 5 gallon drum Henry887 was faulty. It peeled right off the roof. We bagged the product that peeled from the roof and need to return it for a refund. The formula is missing something for the product to fail. We saved half of the product in the drum for inspection. We used this product Henry887 before with no problem. The Henry887 is faulty. When we went to look for more product of Henry887 two weeks ago they had all been pulled from the shelves in the County. There was no explanation from Customers service except there was no Henry887 to be had.

              Stops pooling water and rain from entering
              I used this to seal a wall which abuts a roof deck, where water was pooling and leaking into the house. It is very thick and doesn't cover very far, but made a beautiful seal that blocked the rain.

              cjerian, we are very pleased to see the 5 stars and the nice comments regarding Henry 885 Silicone Seam and Repair Roof Sealant. The coverage rate of Henry 885 should be about 12 square feet per gallon when applied. Henry 885 has a lifetime warranty so you never have to do that repair again. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

                Great product! Easy to use. My wife and I applied to the metal roof of our RV. Went on easily and we did 2 coats. Looks really great and covered everything.

                Poppi, thanks for the great review! Tropi-Cool is great for RVs. Did you also use Henry 887 (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Henry-887-Tropicool-0-90-Gal-White-100-Silicone-Reflective-Roof-Coating-HE887HS142/206029976)? 887 will provide a much smoother finish, as 885 is a butter grade(not paintable) product. Thanks for putting your trust in Henry and Home Depot!

                      Sorry to hear about your experience with Henry 885 Tropi-Cool 100% Silicone Seam and Repair. This product is intended to be trowel grade as it used for repairs and seals seams. You may have mistaken this for Henry 887 Tropi-Cool 100% Silicone Roof Coating, which can by applied by a roller. If you have any further questions please contact us at Srathbun@henry.com.

                          DAODONG, you are correct. This is more of a thick butter-grade made to seal seams and address repairs. If looking for a thinner silicone, look for Henry 887 Silicone Roof Coating, which can be brushed or rolled on. Thank you for putting your trust in Henry and Home Depot.
                            Terrible
                            I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this product. I watched the video and bought a roller, and paint pan to apply. It was impossible to roll on. I had to use a trowel and now my roof look terrible

                            Hi Frank-sorry to hear about the issues you had with our Henry product. It sounds like you may have purchased the wrong product for your project. The Henry 885 Tropi-Cool Seam & Repair Roof Sealant is more of a butter grade sealant that you would use a trowel or paint brush on to apply. It sounds like you were looking for more of a paint grade product which would be our Henry 887 Tropi-Cool 100% Silicone Coating. We would like to get more details on your project to help get you a solution. Please email me at rroberts@henry.com or call our tech. support line at 800-523-0268.

                              The product worked fine. But when I opened the can about 1/3 of it had already been used. Someone used some product and returned the can. I would have returned it myself but was in a rush. Can cost $75 and I only got $50 worth. Bummer!
