I paid a licensed roofer $400 to fix a leak on an extension from my house. Needless to say I still had the leak. I tried this product for the first time a couple years ago, and it worked perfectly. The leak stopped. When I noticed a problem starting in another area, I immediately picked up another can. I used a putty knife to apply. When I finished coating the area it started to drizzle. I was a little worriedl that it may not work seeing that it hadn't had time to cure so I thought. Well...... I was wrong! It worked like a charm again. I am a female over 50 and I will never pay anyone else again I will do it myself. Thank you , thank you thank you for making this product so reliable that even someone like me could use it and get excellent results.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Seals Well, Great Value, Easy to Clean, High Quality, Reliable
I used this product, along with Henry's reinforcing fabric, to emergency patch a large hole in a friend's roof. I applied the patch on a wet roof, during a lull in the storm. When the downpour started again, not a drop more water got past the patch. Stuff worked perfectly. Just follow the instructions and try to get the area as clean as possible before application. It does stink, and it's really sticky, so be sure to wear old clothes and gloves. This stuff does not want to come off once it gets on something.
Henry's Wet Patch has saved me from having to replace my flat roof. I've used it to patch several leaks that have not reoccurred, and have spread it over large areas that look weathered and I suspect would leak if not treated.
I did let the Wet Patch cure and dry and then coated over it with white elastomer coating to protect it--otherwise it would eventually crack in the hot Arizona sun. I will coat over the white elastomer with clear or white water-proof sealant that stands up to ponding water.
Everyone in my subdivision has had flat roof problems--it's a terrible idea. My neighbor just had his roof redone for $$$$$ and it leaked during the next rainfall. Flat roofs are the bane of the Southwest--people like the "Pueblo look" but don't consider that the original inhabitants--see Taos Pueblo, for instance--reworked their roofs each year and did not install heavy HVAC units on their rooftops.
I am trying to keep an old roof going for a few more years, even though one spot is in terrible condition. After researching on the internet, I chose this product for my first roofing attempt beyond covering that part in plastic. I am almost 60, a woman, and know very little about this kind of stuff.
The work was easily done with a plastic putty knife, as I spread it like cake frosting on the most ominous looking shingles. After a few days of letting it dry and set nicely, I covered the spot with plastic again. So far, the roof has not leaked, and I feel more secure knowing that the worst spots have extra protection. I am very proud to be able to tell people I patched my leaky roof! This saved me a ton of money and the extra time I need to keep the roof going.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Work With, Seals Well, Economical
Had a very slow leak in my roof for years in Los Angeles. It would only drip through after days of rain, which does not happen too often in SoCal. Then I got a call saying that the leak was coming through immediately if it rained. Went to LA, hopped up on the roof, tried my best to locate the leak. Could not find it, then ultimately realized it was somehow getting in at some point in the valley of the roof. I filled the valley with this product. Week later tested it again and it leaked. Went back up, some of the product had cracked slightly in the patch area, RIGHT ABOVE the flashing middle which was raised metal. My only thought was maybe the hot California sun heated the metal underneath enough to cause it to dry and crack. That said, instructions DO SAY to use layers. So I put a second layer on. Problem appears to be solved.
Now, I LOVE how this product spreads. I used a plastic putty knife to apply. I added a coat around ALL flashing while I was up there, and really enjoyed the ease of this product. Next thing you know I am going nuts with it, filling anything that even looked like a potential issue on the roof. It does smell like tar roof material. But the spread is nice, it dries very slow, it cleans up off the tools easier than expected (I bought a plastic putty knife expecting to throw it away after use, but it was not necessary, I put it with the remainder of the product for future use) and cleans up off your skin very easy with a waterless, soapless hand cleaner like goop.
Will not hesitate to buy again if needed in the future.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Work With, Seals Well, Easy to Clean
Despite the fact that it is winter and not a good time to patch a roof.....This product has repaired the leak and performed as advertised. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a nuisance leak.
WOW Even in pouring down rain and wind this was a roof saver. Strong winds caused some tiles to shift and create an opening around the flue piping for my stove that was letting water leak into my living room. This patch was put down and tiles replaced and it worked immediately. Highly recommend this product as did the gentleman at Home Depot...thanks to him for his advice
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Work With, Seals Well, Great Value
Henry rubber wet patch roof cement is good for patching roof in wet or dry weather. I also use it to patch small cracks in the driveway. It stays a little pliable in the cracks and doesn't dry out and crack like some driveway products. Great stuff.

I had my roof replaced a few years back and no matter how many times I had the contractor back to fix roof and the ceilings, it continued to leak excessively. I hired a local handy man that insisted that I purchase Henry Rubber Wet Patch Roof Cement. I did and he applied it. There were a few places that didn't get patched (he ran out), but there are NO leaks where Henry's was used!!!!! Awesome stuff that really works!

Had a small leak around an exhaust vent from my furnace that couldnt get fixed with five different roofing contrators. Neighbor next door had 1/2 gallon left that she used and gave it to me to try. I taped off a 2x2 square with duct tape so it would look neat and 6 months later still no leaks. I also did as the Henry website suggested to apply the 555 brilliant aluminum roof coating to seal it, I plan on doing it every year for a safety precaution. Nieghbor has had it on her roof for 10 years with out a leak.
I had some leak issues from my roof and I used this product, in the rain and it was the only thing that worked! Great product and would recommend it to anyone that wants their roof to not leak anymore!
