Product performed as stated but was very thick and hard to work. It cures out very quickly and hopefully will be long lasting.

Thank you for your nice review of Henry 885 Silicone Seam and Repair Roof Sealant. Usually Henry 885 is thick but about the consistency of cake frosting. Perhaps this bucket had been opened once prior to your purchase for some odd reason. We are glad that you were still able to use Henry 885 to complete your project and we thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Co and the Home Depot.

Good stuff but you better use the whole bucket
This is great stuff and stopped a few leaks on my mobile home roof. However, I used about 3/4 of a bucket and 2 days later found another spot. When I took the lid off the remaining material gelled up and had to discard. The lid was sealed tight and in a cool room.

    Thank you for the nice review of Henry 885 Silicone seam and repair sealant. Henry 885 is a great leak stopper to use because it goes on so smoothly with just a brush or a trowel. One of the nice things about Henry 885 is that it doesn't shrink as it cures like most sealants and is not affected by the harmful rays of the sun so it will stay flexible for a lifetime. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

    We love to see happy customers who purchased a product that performed greater than what they expected it would. Henry 885 Silicone Seam and Repair Roof Sealant is so easy to use because of its smooth creamy texture yet it bonds to the roof like iron, to make sure the leak never happens again. Thank you for your very strong rating and for putting your trust in the Henry co and the Home Depot.

    Mixed review. A year ago I used this product and was very happy with it. This time it was so thick I could not roll or paint it on. Had to use a trowel. Needless to say limited the coverage area a lot. On a positive note. It does stop leaking. I’m probably going to try it again and hope the last purchase was just a bad batch.

    Kerry, we are sorry to hear about your experience. It could be possible that you used Henry 887 Tropicool roof coating on your roof a year ago and not the 885. The roof coating can be rolled on or brushed on where the 885 is a seam sealer that is made to be used with a trowel and is pretty thick. The one gallon buckets look pretty similar so it might have been stocked together by accident. Thank you for putting your trust in Henry products and the Home Depot. Please reach out to us at jszymanski@henry.com so that we may clarify any questions about our Henry products.

    This and the similar Tropi-cool coating are good from my point of view as a handyman homeowner but I'm not a roof professional. When I bought this I didn't really know what the difference was between this and the roof coating product. This seam and repair sealant is MUCH thicker and is troweled on. The coating can be poured out, spread with a brush, and is self-leveling. Both solved my leak problems though. Great products!

    Vern, I am sorry that you threw the can of 885 away. 885 is a patching sealant and as such is supposed to be thick in order to patch gaps and seams. 885 is normally applied with a trowel or brush and should be the consistency of butter. 887 TropiCool hi-solids silicone coating is the product that is thinner and is the one used to coat a roof. If you still have the can of 885 I would encourage you to take it back to the Home Depot and exchange it for the 887 TropiCool coating.

    Really liked the product but you need a wooden Masonry brush to apply because it’s so thick. I broke two standard 4” brushes trying to apply the product with them, they separated ate the bristle to handle area. Get the product warm inside for a day or so, warmer the better because it’s not as thick. If warmer. I’d advise old cloths and rubber gloves when applying. It seems to have solved out leak.

    885 is usually the consistency of cake frosting. You may have gotten a bucket that someone had opened on the shelf to look at the product. As a moisture cure product, once the bucket has been opened it will start to cure slowly and become thicker. 885 should be very easy to spread with a trowel or a brush. In the event anyone is dissatisfied with any Henry product I encourage them to contact me directly at jszymanski@henry.com

    Imagine having a leak in the basement with contractors giving the earliest appointment in three weeks. I had no alternative but to dyi it. A Home Depot worker told me about Henry’s repair and advised me to put it on like butter. The Home Depot advisor suggested that I cover it with Henry sealant. I used both and waited for the rain... which did not enter my attic after two weeks of rain. Success

    Used this product on a leak last year, worked great. I got more sealant for another leak late this summer, will not know how it worked till spring. If it works as good as it did the first time I will be getting more and finish all the seams of our roof next year. The lid of the can was all dented up, however, the sealant seemed to be ok. I do feel it is an expensive product.

    The first can I received was dried up and like a brick. I had to return it to the store. The product did not stop leaks as expected and does not last long after the initial opening.

      I’ve only applied this product yesterday, and hope for good results. I have a porch with 4 foot wide structural panels that have a difficulty staying leak free. I’ve tried many products and this Tropicool spread easily and went further than I expected. I’ll check back with resuscitate when known.

      Great protection and easy to apply
      We just applied the product to our Skoolie build and what a great way to keep out water. We used painters tape about two inches on either side of our seams. Then applied the Henry’s seam sealant between the tape for smooth clean lines. It went on smooth as peanut butter and dried quickly. Made sure to pull the tape off within the hour so that it didnt harddn too much and walla, perfect seams that are waterproof for a long rime to come. Note to self to check the weather before applying as it rained an hour after we applied and it held up perfectly fortunately.
