What do we mean by prepping the EPS foam

Exterior Insulation and Finish System installation process

Prepping the eps foam is pretty straight forward. One of the beautiful things about EIFS is the ability to fix or change the appearance of an existing building or even do new and exciting things to a new construction project. In the prep stage the foam is rasped smooth, taking any highs or lows out of the surface. Chalk lines are popped to make all corners straight. Now for the fun stuff, the detail, which the sky is the limit here, from a simple ‘v’ groove to a ten foot two headed eagle coming out of the wall really anything is possible here. But more commonly, a nice crown molding and some columns.

Now that the foam has been prepped and the detail is on it is time for the base coat.
