Building envelope systems company Henry® is offering cost-effective alternatives to re-roofing as part of its Henry® Restoration Systems portfolio. Developed to help extend the existing roof membrane life cycle through roof restoration, this new offering help restore a roof without the expense of removing and installing a new roof.
The aim of the Henry Restoration System is to provide a non-disruptive approach to building maintenance, allowing occupants to continue day-to-day activities during restoration. Simultaneously, it reduces landfill waste and associated costs, and contributes to energy savings by meeting cool roof requirements (based on the particular coating applied). The renewable warranted systems consist of options that are compatible with most roofing substrates, providing weatherproofing protection on low and steep sloped roofs.
Henry’s liquid-applied roofing systems consist of Pro-Grade® (formerly Pro-Grade Elite) coatings, primers, and sealants. With three technology platforms to choose from — silicone, acrylic and aluminum, Henry provides coating options formulated to meet various environmental and structural needs. For instance, the Pro-Grade 988 Silicone White Roof Coating has low VOC content, offers permanent ponding water resistance, is approved for rain water catchment per NSF P151, and exhibits waterproofing performance per ASTM D7281. The silicone roof restoration system is available in premium and custom colors.
With the addition of the new Pro-Grade portfolio, Henry now addresses four stages of the roof membrane life cycle — repair, restore, recover and replace — to offer systems solutions through the life of the building. Henry technical and product specialists are available to provide insight about effective maintenance and restoration strategy for a facility’s roof.
