So, how much does a typical EIFS Repair Cost ?

 

The thing about a Synthetic Stucco repair is that there is no such thing as a typical repair when it comes to Exterior Insulation and Finish System. Each repair is completely different. There are no two the same. It is very hard to estimate how much a repair is going to cost. It is impossible to tell how much damage may be behind the system. If moisture got behind the system and damaged the wood back there. The Synthetic Stucco surface coat hides the damages very well. For that reason we always recommend having some moisture testing done before we give a quote. Otherwise, it is going to be somewhat of an open ended quote.

There are several different types of repairs:

  • missing kick out flashing
  • cracks and flaking
  • failing caulk
  • failures at grade
  • remove and replace
  • minor and major moisture damage including structural damage

Repairs are something you really have to look at to price. You can never tell until you get there and see what everything entails before you can price it. If you would like someone to come out and take a look at your project call Corey Turcotte at 888-407-2609. We service Southeastern Michigan including Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin, Farmington Hills, Troy, Sterling Heights, Shelby Township and surrounding areas. eifs repair cost

Dryvit Issues

Dryvit Issues

Are you having Dryvit issues?

We specialize in repairing Dryvit ® so we know about people having Dryvit issues. There are home owners and business owners that have experienced problems with their synthetic stucco cladding. Moisture damage is one of the biggest problems when it comes to synthetic stucco. The moisture problems are mostly due to a design problem. The original Exterior Insulation and Finish System was what is known as a barrier system, which means it was a weather barrier. When done right the barrier system worked fairly well as the commercial buildings are designed a little better for the barrier system. The flat roof with a copping works much better with the barrier system than a typical residential design. The major issue with Dryvit is in the residential application when it comes to applying the barrier system, which since about the year 2000 the barrier system has not been used. The new system ‘The Next Generation of EIFS’ has been used after the year 2000. In fact the building codes where changed and now there has to be a moisture barrier over any wood framed structure. There may be a wave of homes built in the 80’s and 90’s that are failing now that need to addressed. The old barrier system when done right still holds up well if it is properly maintained. The problem with the barrier system is that if any moisture penetrated it the water was trapped back behind the system and it eventually starts to rot the wood. When the building codes changed they required a moisture barrier over wood, but we will take that one further and say that when using Synthetic Dryvit Stucco you should use a liquid moisture barrier. The liquid moisture barrier works better than a cloth moisture barrier. We have been doing repairs for over 26 years and we found the liquid barrier is far better than the cloth. When installing the cloth barrier you put tons of holes in it when you staple it to the wood and then again when fastening the foam to the wood. When you use the liquid barrier instead of fastening the foam with mechanical fasteners you apply the foam with a notch trowel which creates channels for moisture to drain. The mechanical fasteners smash the foam to the wood so tight to the wood moisture has no chance to escape. If a liquid moisture barrier is used you can eliminate the biggest issue when it comes to the product. dryvit issues

Dryvit Stucco Repair in Southeast Michigan

We have be doing repairs in Southeastern MI for over 26 years. The most important think when it comes to Synthetic Stucco is doing it right the first time. When that doesn’t happen we are there to pick up the pieces and put them back together again. One of the hardest things in the construction industry in general is to fix something that someone else made a mess of. With Exterior Insulation and Finish System it is very difficult to know exactly how much damage there is behind the system. If moisture penetrates the system it can cause damage because the moisture can get trapped without any air flow which can cause the wood to rot. Back about 20 years ago the system was much different. Back then there was no way for the moisture to drain. Now there is a drainage system to allow the moisture to escape. What we have now is a bunch of projects that were done in the 80’s and 90’s that had the old system that are failing now. Dryvit has taken some major steps to ensure the new projects being done today will drain moisture and not fail in the future. One of the most important thing they have done is to incorporate a training and an dryvit stucco repairaccountability program for the applicators. Nowadays, you have to be a certified applicator to even buy the product, which has helped a lot. If you have a project in the Southeastern Michigan that needs repairs or your home is clad with EIFS and it needs repairs we would like to come out and give you a free quote. We have specialized in Dryvit stucco repair for the past 12 years and have been in the industry for over 26 years.
