EIFS Repair Tip Of The Day for 3-11-2011
Keeping your tools clean.
For an EIFS applicator it can be hard to keep the tools clean. On a really hot day it only takes a matter of minutes for the alpha base coat or finish coat to dry up on the tools. After the material is dry on the tools it is a task to get it off. There is an easy fix to this problem. Simply carry a bottle of WD-40 with you and spray the back side of your hawk and trowel with it. The base coat or finish will dry on the tools but it scraps right off. With a layer of oil between the trowel and the mud it allows the mud to fall right off very easily.
