Exterior Insulation and Finish System installation process
The Alpha Base Coat is troweled on to the foam by an approved EIFS applicator and a fiber glass mesh is embedded into the base coat. The base coat is applied 1/8 of an inch thick. The fiber glass cloth comes in 38 inch and 48 inch rolls and is overlapped 2 inches. There can not be any eps foam that is not covered with fiber glass mesh. Including all corners. The base coat should be troweled on smooth and a corner tool used on all corners for a nice sharp look.
