Henry 209 Elastomastic Roof Patch - Good or Bad?


I have some minor roof leaks around the chimney flashing and vent pipe. I saw this Henry 209 Elastomastic Roof Patch at Home Depot. It was priced a bit higher than the other roofing cements they had and it is making some nice claims on the packaging as though it will handle the job well. Any thoughts or experience with this product?

It works fine, but are you sure it's not time for it to be reflashed?

How would I know if it is time? Just by the age of the original flashing?

Looking at it should tell you.
Is it all rusted out, is there pin holes in it, are there big gaps at the seams, is it still tight to the brick?
Post a picture and I'm sure someone here can see if it was done right.

Ok, thanks. I will take a close look when I get up on the roof to do the job and post a pic if it is not obvious to me.

I'd suggest figuring out the source of the leak and correcting the issue.

Goop in a can is a Band-Aid at best. It may buy you some time but it's not a fix.

As mentioned post some pictures if you want to know what you should do fix the problem.

Hi EagleOne,

Depending upon yor goals for the repair (Longevity, cost, time, etc.) 209 might be just the trick. Depending upon our area, Henry 208 or 208R may work just as well.

If you are comfortable getting on the roof, and the roof is in otherwise OK condition, you may be able to find the location of the leak - the trickest part. Once you have done that any of the reccommended products should last a good, long while.

Chris

Roof cement isn't meant to be used on a roof. Find out what's causing the leak, flashing, valley, broken/torn/missing shingle, worn out pipe collar, etc. and replace it.
