Heavenly White Roof Lifts the Spirits of Evangel University
Roof Coating Project Features Henry Company Coatings

Huntington Park, CA – (December 2005) – The roof on the Evangel University Ashcroft Activities Center has survived the grueling elements of Ozarks mountain weather for more than 30 years. With the hope to preserving the roof for another 30 years, the University turned to Henry Company and its premium elastomeric roof coatings products.

Evangel University selected Charlie Jones Company of Newkirk, OK to restore the roof on the Ashcroft Activities Center with the Henry Company 280 Premium White Elastomeric Roof Coating, a specialty coating for commercial and residential roofs.

The Henry Company 280 acrylic based, non-fibered white finish, roof coating features an 85% reflective rating, offers excellent UV resistance and dazzled the eyes of the University Staff.

“As the roofing project neared completion the complements on how beautiful the building looked started pouring in. The change from the dingy and yellowed roof to brilliant white took some on the campus by surprise,” says Charlie Jones, proprietor of Charlie Jones Company. “Even more striking than the roof’s appearance was the way the Henry Company roof coating changed the indoor environment of the building.”

The Ashcroft Activities Center’s is the home to Evangel Crusader’s basketball and volleyball teams. The facility features architectural peaks reaching 43 feet, seating for 2,000, aquatics center, basketball, volleyball and badminton courts, and was opened in 1967 without air conditioning. The center remained in use during the three-week project for basketball practice over the summer break.

“After stripping the existing microform coating off the roof and applying the Henry 107 Asphalt Emulsion base, the internal building temperature shot up by 15-20 degrees. When the Henry monolithic coating went on, the air comfort immediately improved. The indoor environment changes surprised the people using the center, and of course left them very pleased when the project reached completion,” Jones added.

The Henry Company 280 Premium White Elastomeric Roof Coating and Henry Company 107 Asphalt Emulsion roof coating provides superior waterproofing protection and exceptional UV reflection for industrial and residential roofs. Henry 280 and 107 roof coatings coat and protect metal, concrete, masonry and smooth-surface built-up roofs. For technical roof coating product information, visit
