EIFS Repair 1-888-407-2609

Welcome to EIFS Repair (1-888-407-2609). If you are interested in the EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) industry you will find this site engaging and full of knowledge. We have an extensive background in Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems, and have no problem letting you know what we know; As, we feel, that it has been one of the short comings of the entire industry. Keeping the EIFS process a secret has not benefited any one, nor will it. We would rather, a home owner or contractor know the steps needed to complete a professional and successful EIFS project.

That is are aim here at Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems / EIFS Repair, to educate anyone that wants to know about the EIFS industry from general practices, to those little things to look for that Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems applicators just hate to do. Well, I guess it’s not really that they hate to do them, it is, that they are time consuming, and costly. And the little things are very hard to spot unless you really know what you are looking for. But those little things are what can cause havoc down the road.

Here are a few points of interest.

We will not only teach you how to properly do the EIFS application, and what to watch out for, but perhaps the most important part of the site is that we will be introducing new and improved ways of doing EIFS that your applicator may not even be aware of yet. We will do our best to give as detailed instructions and shop drawings of these new techniques our Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems Guru’s come up with here at EIFS repair.

We will also go over the material including specifications and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and the distributors Dyvit, Senergy and Sto.

Dryvit

Dryvit ®

The Dryvit System

Dryvit is one of the largest EIFS manufacturers in the world and they did an excellent job of marketing the EIFS product. In fact they did such a good job that the entire industry was know as Dryvit until recent years. Dryvit did much like Rollerblade®  did with inline skates. We now, for the most part, refer to the industry as the EIFS industry, and there are a few manufacturers of the EIFS product, Dryvit being one of them. Each manufacturer of EIFS has there own terminology of the products, so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the basic Dryvit lingo.

EIFS minimum requirement for EPS Foam thickness

Did you know there is a EIFS minimum requirement for EPS Foam thickness?

Why most EIFS contractors are doing it wrong

Why are most EIFS contractors are doing it wrong

There is a very simple reason why most EIFS contractors are doing it wrong

The main reason EIFS contractors are not doing EIFS the right way is that it cost a lot more money to do it right. There are a hundred things you could leave off, and not even do on an EIFS job to make your life easier as a contractor. Treating the windows and doors before the foam is stuck is a very time consuming job, not to mention the cost of using all the right material. Continue reading
