Now is the time to think about your home’s EIFS Repair
Spring seems to be coming early this year which means it’s time to get those EIFS (EXterior Insulation and Finish System) repairs taken care of. Our schedule fills up pretty quick. There is no time to hesitate. With these 60 degree days we are going to have woodpeckers coming to roost. Typically the roosting season starts in April, but we have already had a few calls from customers with woodpeckers. It is important to get on the phone as soon as you hear them starting to knock on the house. Most people sit on the fence with their repairs until summer when the season is very busy and a lot of the time we are too busy. This is actually the best time to have us come out and look at your Synthetic Stucco repair project.
We have been in Ann Arbor, Port Huron, Bloomfield, Sterling Heights, Highland and Toledo this spring so far. If you have a repair and you are in the Southeastern Michigan area we would like to come out and take a look at it. Call 888-407-2609 to book your appointment. We fix delaminating stucco, missing kick out flashing, buckling, cracking, flaking, bird holes, truck damages, and much more.
We have been doing repairs in Southeastern MI for over 26 years. The most important think when it comes to Synthetic Stucco is doing it right the first time(like most things do it right once is always better). When that doesn’t happen we are there to pick up the pieces and put them back together again. One of the hardest things in the construction industry in general is to fix something that someone else had made a mess of. With Exterior Insulation and Finish System it is very difficult to know exactly how much damage there is behind the system. If moisture penetrates the system it can cause damage because the moisture can get trapped without any air flow, which can cause the wood to rot. Back about 20 years ago the system was much different. Back then there was no way for the moisture to drain. Now there is a drainage system to allow the moisture to escape. What we have now is a bunch of projects that were done in the 80’s and 90’s that had the old system that are failing. Dryvit™ has taken some major steps to ensure the new projects being done today will drain moisture and not fail in the future. One of the most important thing they have done is to incorporate a training and an accountability program for the applicators. Nowadays, you have to be a certified applicator to even buy the product, which has helped a lot. If you have a project in the Southeastern Michigan that needs repairs or your home is clad with EIFS and it needs repairs we would like to come out and give you a free quote. We have specialized in Dryvit stucco repair for the past 18 years and have been in the industry for over 26 years.

We have been Exterior Insulation and Finish System repairs in Southeastern Michigan for over 26 years. We know why, when and how the system fails. Over the years we have seen it all.We have put this kit together from years of experience and testing. We have laterally written the book on the subject. With at least 12 classes and certifications on the subject you have someone that has put the time into being educated on the subject and the hands on experience of working in the field. Normally you are getting one or the other it is rare when you find both and that’s what you are getting when you buy the kit. Someone that has both the education and the hands on knowledge of a master of the industry. We have tested the methods and materials of this kit in the field our self literally hundreds of times and made tweaks and changes until it is a perfect kit for small home repairs like woodpecker holes.
The kit comes with 3 standard textures of finish which are fine finish, medium finish and coarse finish. Between the 3 we cover most all texture types. You will have to determine which texture is going to be best for your project. Picking the right texture is critical to having a nice looking patch when it is all finished. Remember that after your patch is completed you are going to paint the patch with paint you have matched at your local paint store. When you paint over the Synthetic Stucco it loses some of it’s texture. So, if you are stuck between a fine finish and a medium then go with the medium and after it is painted it will look more like the fine. We call those textures tweeners, because they are in between textures and are a real pain even for the pros, just do your best. There’s nothing more you can do.
The base coat in the kit takes a long time to setup, so you have plenty of time to use it at least 45 to an hour. On a real hot day though you can cut that in half. Always use cold water to make your mix. The most important part about the cement coat is to get it as smooth as possible. The finish coat is only a sixteenth of an inch thick so it will not cover to much. It is easier to run the classic finish as it is the thickest. That being said the fine finish is the hardest to make look good. Bottom line the better your base coat looks the better your patch will look.
The fiberglass mesh is important for you patch. If you don’t use the mesh the cement coat will crack. The fiberglass mesh is embedded into the base coat.
