Chatted with my buddy who has been roofing for a couple of years now and when I asked about the Henryís elastomeric paint, he immediately recommended that I lay one coat of the paint, and while it is still completely wet to lay a layer of mesh over top. Once this is dry he recommended adding a second layer of Henryís.
He says it makes all the difference.
Iíd like to pick at your brains, and see what you guys think??
About to do my roof this weekend. The sun is out the temperature is perfectly 70s here in El Cajon.
Itís actually rained all of my last weekend so we didnít have a chance to get up before the rains to do some roof sealing.
(Before this it was honestly too warm to even touch the roof with my hands.)
My weekends are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Iíve settled on a few options for sealants.
The silaflex 252 seems reasonable for the roof.
My father recommended a product called through the roof.
We used a little bit last weekend and it seems to really slow the leak we have in a window.
Itís a product that can be applied under water, so for those oh **** moments when you could feel defeated, there is another chance! And while itís literally in action!
Mikey was on the roof in the rain sealing up a leak and it stopped it pretty immediately.
Iíve counted 4 leaks so far.
The through the roof will be for the rivers and over the initial sikaflex 252.
The windows are going to get hit with 3M donatron 550.
As for the roof paint. Iím still up in the air.
These are my conclusions based off my research on this forum.
