This is an image of a project we completed that had a delivery truck hit the overhang.
In this image we had this building that woodpeckers had made their home in. After fixing all the holes in the building, we were able to evict the persistent birds.
Why hiring a EIFS consultant on every Synthetic Stucco job no matter how big or small is so important.

EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System), sometimes known as stucco or synthetic stucco, is a common exterior material. This is due to a number of factors, including the fact that it can be applied to a wide range of substrates and enhances both historic and contemporary homes. We will go through the fundamentals of Exterior Insulation and Finish System stucco in this blog post, including what it is, how it is installed, and some of its advantages.
Exterior Insulation and Finish System is a cladding material that has multiple layers to create it’s stucco. A weather-resistant barrier is normally the first layer, followed by an insulating foam layer. The subsequent layer is a thin layer of fiberglass based cementitious material, and the final layer is a render made of acrylic. You may cover block, brick, OSB, T1-11, and fiberglass board using synthetic stucco. Both residential and business structures frequently choose it.
An Exterior Insulation and Finish System Inspection should be done before you buy a Synthetic Stucco home.
Everyone knows to get your home inspected before you buy it, but there are a lot of people that do not know if you plan on buying a house clad with Exterior Insulation and Finish System you should have it also inspected by an EIFS professional to make sure the system is up to par and if it is not you need to know how much it is going to cost to fix it. Essentially, there are 4 things that every buyer should do before purchasing the home.
I have been specializing in repairing synthetic stucco longer than anyone else. Most companies that repair EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) have something else they do as a main gig. I have been focusing on repairing this product since 2000, and after the testing came out from the Oakridge National Laboratories in 2007 I doubled down on repairs. You would be hard pressed to find someone that has more experience repairing EIFS.
