Obviously, there are other tools we could have put in here, but we wanted to have the tools most plasterers wanted in the kit, so we asked you, and here is what we found everyone wanted in the kit. These are the essential tools that every plasterer needs, and wants, at an affordable price. The tools in this kit are all top notch tools that will last. The trowels are of the best quality, and the rivets will not pop before you can break this trowel in like some other trowels out there. Same with the hawk. I have used some hawks that fall apart in a few days of normal use. These hawks are made to last. Of course, we don’t want you beating them with a hammer, but under normal use if you are diligent with keeping it clean it, will last a good while. That is the reason the kit comes with a bucket brush. Not to clean bucket necessarily, but to keep your tools clean. It is very important to keep your tools clean if you want to have tools that last for years.

Plastering Trowel

Stainless Steel Premium Trowel: These trowels are used by professional Exterior Insulation and Finish System applicators with 20+ years of experience and they really like them. We have not had anyone say they don’t like the trowels. Everyone loves them.

 

 

EIFS FloatFloat: The plastic float is an important part of making the job look great. After troweling the finish coat on the float is used to lay down the finish. Having a clean flat float is key to any good plasterers tool bag.

 

 

margin trowelMargin Trowel: Most plasterers carry a margin trowel around with them all day. A margin trowel is a great trowel to get in those hard to get areas. It also works great to scrap off excess mud from the back of your trowel between cleanings.

 

 

outside corner trowelOutside Corner Tools: We could have included more corner tools, but honestly the most used corner tools and the one inch and the inch and a half, so that is what we have included in the kit to keep the cost down. We did not want to include a bunch of tools you would not you every day. We did not include any inside corners because lets face it most journeyman plasterers do not have a problem making inside corners look great with just a trowel.

Plastering Hawk

 

Hawk: We went with an aluminum 12″ hawk because it keeps the cost down and it is the best to use with a 12″ trowel. We used to all use a huge 14″ trowel and hawk back in the day, but now that we all have bad wrists and elbows from trying to kill ourselves I think most of us realize a 12″ trowel is a little more practical for the long haul.

 

 

Bucket Cleaning Brush

Bucket Brush: It’s obvious job is cleaning buckets, so you can use them to make more mud, but more importantly this brush is used to keep your tools clean and is carried with you in a bucket of water while you work, as to clean your tools frequently.

The Do It Yourself EIFS Repair Kit – The Trowel

The Do It Yourself EIFS Repair Kit

The trowel is a very important tool in the EIFS Repair Kit

The EIFS Repair Kit includes a trowel which is your application tools. The shape of the trowel is perfect for scoping out the cement mix and gives you a great way to spread EIFS Repair Kit Trowelthe cement smoothly onto the wall. The EIFS cement mix is made to be applied very thin, approx. 1/8″ thick with little waves or bumps in the cement coat. The cement coat should be applied with great detail to perfection as the finish coat will only look as good as the cement coat under it. If you can not get it smooth you can let you best work dry and come back and sand it smooth. The best think to sand the cement coat with is floor sand paper. You can find floor sand paper at your local home improvement store. Another thing to keep in mind is that your cement will dry up after time and become very hard to work with. The dry time has a lot to do with the temperature. If you are working on a cloudy 60 degree day you may have about 45 minutes to work with your cement before it begins to show signs of drying up. But if you are out on a sunny 90 degree day you may only have about 10 minutes to complete your project. Keep in mind that the EIFS material should never be applied in weather that is below 40 degrees.

EIFS Repair ‘Tip Of The Day’ for 3-9-2011

A good plasterer will use a Curry trowel.

It is pretty common knowledge that Curry trowels are the best, well at least to all of us season vets of the plastering industry outEIFS Repair Curry Trowel there.  For everyone one else take my word for it, there is no better trowel on the market. If you are a EIFS guy, and you don’t have a Curry trowel in your tool bucket, then get you one you’ll love it. I personal use a 14 x 5 Curry Finishing Trowel which in my option is the perfect sized trowel for EIFS. It takes several months to break in a new trowel but after that you are golden with one of these trowels. It does not matter if you use Dryvit, Senergy, Master Wall, Sto or any other material a Curry trowel works the best with them all.

EIFS Repair ‘Tip Of The Day’ 3-8-2011

When it comes to the bottom of the building where it meets the ground or the concrete or even a roof line. I always see rough looking edges instead of a nice clean edge. If you use this tool you will never have a rough looking bottom edge again. The reason the edge looks so bad is that a normal corner tool will not fit at the bottom. With the Wind lock 45 degree corner tool you will have great looking edges every time. You do have to buy a left and right 45 degree corner tool.
