EIFS Sign Attachment Specification

EIFS Sign Attachment Specification

An overview of the EIFS Sign Attachment Specification

In this post we will take a look at the EIFS Sign Attachment Specification. It is not to often an EIFS guy will be there for the sign install, but I had to post this specification as almost every sign area that I am repairing has been installed wrong by the sign company, when it comes to installing over EIFS anyway. A non corrosive pipe sleeve is used for installing a sign. The holes are drilled for the sign a usual, but instead of just screwing the bolts into the hole a small pcv pipe is inserted into the hole. Before inserting the pipe I squirt some EIFS approved sealant in. Then I insert the pipe. The pipe should stick out past the EIFS about 1/2″. The pipe will have a strip of breaker bond tape applied to the base where the pipe meets the EIFS finish. Then a bead of approved sealant will be applied over the breaker bond tape. Now the sign can be installed as usual. This procedure will prevent moisture from infiltrating the EIFS system from the sign. I have repaired a lot of sign areas over the years with business’s coming and going, and I have never seen a sign company do this to date.
