Before you begin your EIFS Repair
Before you begin your EIFS Repair it is a good idea to remove the finish coat around the damaged area
There are a couple ways you can remove the layer of finish from the area around the repair. A steel brush can be an effective tool for removing the finish, or a grinder can be used. If a grinder is used it is very important to only remove the layer of finish. It is easy to lose control and grind away the cement base coat and the fiberglass mesh. Removing the finish coat allows the base coat to transition evenly to the existing material around the damaged area. The process of removing the finish coat only takes a few minutes, and makes a huge difference in the look of the EIFS Repair. Using this technique can be the difference from a professional looking patch, and a unsightly lump of EIFS on a wall.
