Eifs Stucco Sytem:
Synthetic Stucco or EIFS (Exterior Insulating Finishing System) was introduced to the US in 1969. Because of its exceptional insulating qualities, durability, and curb appeal. Stucco can be installed over Blocks/Bricks,Denseglass,Plywood and most masonry sub-straight. EIFS multi-layered systems typically consist of a polystyrene-based insulation board, insulation board, a base coat reinforced by glass fiber mesh, and an acrylic polymer finish coat.
We are skilled craftsmen specializing in maintenance and restoration of color-integral stucco using cement-based products, Repairs of cracks, voids or dings, finished to the existing stucco texture. We use cement-based materials that are non-toxic, UV resistant and inhibit biological growth. Repair of all voids: holes in stucco walls should be filled properly, insuring proper meshing technique and adequate backing is in place.
Elastomeric stucco coatings are also acrylic paints but they are about 10 times thicker than standard acrylic paints which gives it a 300% elongation. This means it is very flexible and stretches. It returns back to its original shape, instead of cracking like a standard acrylic paint would do when your building settles. Elastomeric Stucco Coating is good if you are experiencing water damage inside your home or unit, If you have unsightly stucco cracking usually from building settling. Most buildings are manufactured with a waterproof membrane that is installed between the framing of the building and the stucco. These waterproof membranes don’t usually last more than 30 years before they start to degrade and crack. When this happens, rain water can then pass through to the interior walls and cause damage. If you are experiencing interior water damage or excessive stucco cracking, elastomeric coatings can help.
The name drywall refers to the fact that walls made of the material are installed without the use of water. Gypsum Company (USG) invented drywall in 1916. It was originally called “Sackett Board,” after the Sackett plaster company,a single layer of compressed gypsum sandwiched between two sheets of heavy paper to create a sheet of drywall. The word gypsum comes from the Latin term meaning plaster.
