Taking a closer look at EIFS / Dryvit repair – roof rakes

When you do a roof rake you want to make sure there is somewhere for the roof run off water to go other than behind the system. There should be two inches between the shingles and the EIFS.  Along the roof rake there should be a starter track installed. The first piece of foam sits inside the starter track. The starter track prevents any roof run off water from penetrating the system while traveling down the roof. At the end of the roof rake a kick-out flashing needs to be installed so that the roof run off does not drain behind the system.

Exterior Insulation and Finish System also known as Synthetic Stucco or Dryvit ®
