EIFS – Floating the Finish Coat

EIFS Repair Tip Of The Day for 3-3-2011

Floating the Finish Coat

When floating the finish it is important that everyone uses the same technique. If one guy is floating the wall in circles and another guy is sing figure eights then you float job is not going to match. My rule of thumb is nine inch circles  counter clockwise. This is a very important detail that is often overlooked. So, from now on look down the wall at your fellow EIFS applicator floating with you and make sure you are both doing the same thing. Trust me you jobs will look much better.

EIFS Repair is online. Our mission is to educate the contractor, business owner, home owner and any one else that cares to learn about the proper way to apply EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System). We support ‘The Turcotte System‘; a water infiltration prevention standard that is catching on quick in the industry. The Turcotte System works wonders and does not involve any new or expensive techiques or materials. The most important thing to note about the system is it is not a water management system. Tell me, what business owner/ home owner wants to manage water that is inside the walls of there home or business. I would have to guess none. That is the thing about the Turcotte System it prevents the water from getting behind the walls in the first place. And like most things that work well it is very simple. It is exactly the same thing an EIFS applicator already knows how to do just in a different way, in a way the works to keep water from penetrating the foam. I am sure you can see why we think it is very important to educate anyone that needs an EIFS Repair done on the Turcotte System as a EIFS Repair could be avoided if the Turcotte System was used in the first place. The Turcotte System 2.o coming soon.
