EIFS Moisture Testing

EIFS Moisture Testing

EIFS repair and EIFS moisture testing goes hand in hand

I think it is about time we included this service in our everyday services, as it only makes sense to find out where the moisture is and where it came from before we even start any repairs. Till this point we had been calling in 3rd party inspectors and waiting for the results and then taking over from there and correcting all their findings anyway. The truth of the matter is that you really cannot simply read a book, go out and buy an expensive moisture EIFS Moisture Testingmeter and think you are going to be proficient at finding moisture behind EIFS. It takes years of particle experience in the field. We have been applying EIFS for over 23 years and have been focused on EIFS Repairs full time for over 5 years. There is absolutely no one more qualified to do your EIFS moisture test, bottom line. Knowing where to look for moisture intrusion and what to look for is half the battle, but water is a funny thing. I have seen on numerous occasions water infiltrating the EIFS from one area and running down a metal stud or I-beam up to 30 or 40 feet away and causing damage. The usual suspects for moisture intrusion are other products not the EIFS itself. The flashing will fail or was not done right in the first place or the caulking will begin to crack and let moisture in around the doors and windows. Whether, the roof copping or the sealant failed it is usually due to one of two things someone didn’t do it right to begin with or someone did not maintain it for years. We have done a ton of repairs over the years and we have seen it all. We know exactly what the problem is as soon as we look at it nine times out of ten. Just knowing there is moisture behind the wall and what the percentage reading from a meter is, is really not good enough to begin the repairs or even estimate how much it is going to cost to fix it. You have to know where the moisture came from and how you are going to prevent it from returning. For this reason we carry a moisture reader with us on all our repair jobs.
