Repairing EIFS for the most part should be left to the professionals, but as it would have it the professionals that are actually willing to do EIFS repairs or know how to repair EIFS are far and few between. For that reason we have designed the original EIFS Repair Kit and supply instructions on how to get your repair done like a pro. The kit comes with everything you will need to complete a few small repairs. When working with Synthetic Stucco it is important to have patience. It takes some time to get it just right. I would start with a repair that is not out in plane sight. You may want to start with a patch behind a tree or something. You are not going to do a perfect looking patch the very first time. It may take a time or two to get good at it. The kit comes with all the materials you will need and a few tools. What type of repairs should you try to do yourself? The best idea is to stay to the small repairs anything to big should be felt for a pro. I would think bird holes, minor cracks, minor flaking and minor hail damage are good examples of repairs you might take on yourself. If you are planing on doing a Synthetic Stucco repair yourself the best place to start is by purchasing the kit. I would recommend reading all the instruction before attempting to do the repair. After you have read all the instructions bring the quick reference guide with you when doing the repair. The process is done one step at a time so it is pretty easy to stay focused on what you are doing and not get overwhelmed.

We have been Exterior Insulation and Finish System repairs in Southeastern Michigan for over 26 years. We know why, when and how the system fails. Over the years we have seen it all.We have put this kit together from years of experience and testing. We have laterally written the book on the subject. With at least 12 classes and certifications on the subject you have someone that has put the time into being educated on the subject and the hands on experience of working in the field. Normally you are getting one or the other it is rare when you find both and that’s what you are getting when you buy the kit. Someone that has both the education and the hands on knowledge of a master of the industry. We have tested the methods and materials of this kit in the field our self literally hundreds of times and made tweaks and changes until it is a perfect kit for small home repairs like woodpecker holes.
The kit comes with 3 standard textures of finish which are fine finish, medium finish and coarse finish. Between the 3 we cover most all texture types. You will have to determine which texture is going to be best for your project. Picking the right texture is critical to having a nice looking patch when it is all finished. Remember that after your patch is completed you are going to paint the patch with paint you have matched at your local paint store. When you paint over the Synthetic Stucco it loses some of it’s texture. So, if you are stuck between a fine finish and a medium then go with the medium and after it is painted it will look more like the fine. We call those textures tweeners, because they are in between textures and are a real pain even for the pros, just do your best. There’s nothing more you can do.
The base coat in the kit takes a long time to setup, so you have plenty of time to use it at least 45 to an hour. On a real hot day though you can cut that in half. Always use cold water to make your mix. The most important part about the cement coat is to get it as smooth as possible. The finish coat is only a sixteenth of an inch thick so it will not cover to much. It is easier to run the classic finish as it is the thickest. That being said the fine finish is the hardest to make look good. Bottom line the better your base coat looks the better your patch will look.
The fiberglass mesh is important for you patch. If you don’t use the mesh the cement coat will crack. The fiberglass mesh is embedded into the base coat.
