Henry Roof Coating

Hello all,

Just wanted to see if anyone ever used the Henry Aluminum Roof coating? It boasts of cutting roof temperature by 50%, and might look a little better than the white. It appears to be silver in color and has aluminum in the coat.

I used the Henry Tropicool coating and it made a big difference in comfort. Yes it's white but I was at the point of thinking the trailer was unusable and needed to do whatever I could to cool down the inside temp.

I would not install that product on my Airstream's roof.
One of the ingredients is bitumen (tar/asphalt). It is not paint.

I have it, in white, on my AS roof for 5 years now. Works great and helps with the heat and is a waterproofing material.

I use a reflective and leak sealer too. My concern was finding a coating that I could safely walk on.

HYTECH roof coating
Bus/RV roof coating. Tech jargon on website. Applied 3 years ago, 34' in Texas... almost doesn't need second AC... cool enough for me but not my bride.... so "Yes, Dear, 2 ACs! My pleasure!!"

Hytechsales.com is link. Go to order, find "Bus Kote"

Send email to them for great prep and apply process.

BTW, I can lay my bare forearm on the roof in the middle of Texas summer (high-noon daylight of course)

Werkz fer mee

I will also recommend the Hytech coating and insulation beads. I did my roof this past summer and it was a lot of work but now it's much cooler, drier, and I won't have to mess around up top for a long time.
