How to Repair EIFS
Best practices on how to repair EIFS
Repairing EIFS for the most part should be left to the professionals, but as it would have it the professionals that are actually willing to do EIFS repairs or know how to repair EIFS are far and few between. For that reason we have designed the original EIFS Repair Kit and supply instructions on how to get your repair done like a pro. The kit comes with everything you will need to complete a few small repairs. When working with Synthetic Stucco it is important to have patience. It takes some time to get it just right. I would start with a repair that is not out in plane sight. You may want to start with a patch behind a tree or something. You are not going to do a perfect looking patch the very first time. It may take a time or two to get good at it. The kit comes with all the materials you will need and a few tools. What type of repairs should you try to do yourself? The best idea is to stay to the small repairs anything to big should be felt for a pro. I would think bird holes, minor cracks, minor flaking and minor hail damage are good examples of repairs you might take on yourself. If you are planing on doing a Synthetic Stucco repair yourself the best place to start is by purchasing the kit. I would recommend reading all the instruction before attempting to do the repair. After you have read all the instructions bring the quick reference guide with you when doing the repair. The process is done one step at a time so it is pretty easy to stay focused on what you are doing and not get overwhelmed.
