Pro DNA Contracting specializes in Eifs Stucco,Restorations,Emc Coating, Boarding and Drywall services. Here is some history on the services we offer:

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.

 

      Restoration:       

 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.

 

         Elastomretic Coatings/EMC:

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.

 

Drywall  

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.

        DensGlass Boarding:

Fiberglass mat gypsum panel that raises the performance and adds long-lasting qualities to fire-rated and nonfire-rated building fabrications. The sheathings provide protection against moisture and mold. DensGlass Sheathings also create a sturdy air- and water-resistant substrate barrier, It works well when fitted behind bricks, sidings, exterior insulation and finishing systems, stucco or other permanent fittings. DensGlass sheathings allow for construction to go on in bad weather to meet the stipulated deadline.

                                            Cement boarding:

Cement board is a combination of cement and reinforcing fibers formed into 4 foot by 8 foot sheets (or 3 foot by 5 foot sheets), 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick that are typically used as a tile backing board. Cement board can be nailed or screwed to wood or steel studs to create a substrate for vertical tile and attached horizontally to plywood for tile floors, kitchen counters and backsplashes. It can be used on the exterior of buildings

as a base for exterior plaster (stucco) systems and sometimes as the finish system itself.

                                            Plywood boarding:

Plywood is a sheet material manufactured from thin layers or “plies” of wood veneers that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. It is an engineered wood from the family of manufactured boards which includes medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and particle board (chipboard). There are usually an odd number of plies, so that the sheet is balanced—this reduces warping. Because plywood is bonded with grains running against one another and with an odd number of composite parts, it is very hard to bend it perpendicular to the grain direction of the surface ply.

                                            Faux stone wall system:

Stone cladding often refers to lightweight simulated stone products with a concrete-type base. These stone cladding products are often fitted to lightweight substrates to reduce the material cost of construction; this would typically comprise of timber stud frame, waterproof barriers, Fibre cement sheet, Mortar scratch mesh.

 

Concrete:

Early cementicious composite materials typically included mortar-crushed, burned limestone, sand and water. When concrete was first invented depends on how one interprets the term concrete. Reinforced concrete was invented in 1853 by a plasterer from Newcastle called W. B. Wilkinson. Since concrete and steel expand at the same rate when heated which is critical to its many applications, the properties of concrete and steel complement each other.

Balcony Coating System

Balcony coating system are used  for waterproofing of  communal  walkways  and balconies prolonging the life of the  existing substrate and reducing the risk of expensive damages. Seamless waterproofing membrane with low textured, slip resistant finish, long term durability with a verity of color choice available.
CAULKING PIC

Caulking

A waterproof filler and sealant used in building work and repairs, the application is a flexible sealing compound that closes up gaps in buildings and other structures against, air,dust, insects, or as a component in fire stopping. In the tunneling industry, caulking is refers to as the sealing of joints in segmental precast concrete tunnels.
