Help my roof is leaking. What should I use?


Recommended Posts

Hi. My roof is leaking after a massive storm in Louisiana. The next day I went to HD and got Henry's Wet Patch roof repair. It stopped the leak but it's still soft and gooey. I read the manufacturer instructions and it says it never fully hardens. People have asked me what the roof is made of. I don't know. It's a 1986 Mini Cruiser. I think it's fiberglass over wood? What should I use to fix the leak or should I just be happy with the gooey Henry's?

Well you should have bought some white elastomeric roof seal. Available everywhere cause they use it on Mobile homes too. Trouble now is you would have to remove all of the Henry's. I have used that Henry's stuff on my house cause white wouldn't have looked right on a real house roof. I also didn't read the instructions before. Not only didn't it dry, it leaked again in weeks. Big job scraping it all off.

I think that was the guy who did his roof with the truck bedliner .

I believe you are right! That stuff is fairly elastic I'll bet it's holding up fine.
