EIFS Repair Tip Of The Day – 3-5-2011
The consistency of the finish
I think everyone has there own preference on the consistency of the finish but really if there is too much water added the finish will bleed through and if there is no water added it will tend to roll on you. The best practice is to add a large cup of water like a 24 oz cup. If you are using tint packs with your finish that will give you enough water to make sure you get all the tint out of the tint pack. That is more of an estimate than a solid amount. If it is really hot you could even use 32 oz’s. One of the key things is to make sure you add the same amount to every bucket. I find Senergy, Dryvit and Master Wall all react about the same to the water.
