Failure to adequately maintain a building envelop system (Stucco, EIFS, etc) can have very noticeable and undesirable effects that not only affect the appearance and functionality of the envelope system itself, but can cause harmful secondary damage to other building systems by allowing them to be exposed to environmental conditions beyond what they are designed for.

A qualified EIFS inspector is essential to the proper maintenance of a building’s envelope system. Moreover, a qualified EIFS inspector should have the ability to perform invasive testing which may require removal and replacement of the EIF system in limited areas to accurately assess the condition of an existing envelope system. Based on a proper evaluation with recommendations for remedial action, the building owner can contact a Qualified EIFS Repair Contractor to conduct the necessary maintenance activities that will keep the building’s exterior system functioning at 100% of its designed functionality.

If your building has not been inspected previously, it is possible that the initial repairs or maintenance issues will be costly. However, our experience has been that by having your building inspected periodically by a qualified EIFS inspector and properly repaired, annual maintenance costs will be kept to a minimum, and in many cases can be limited to the cost of the inspection.

Why a Qualified EIFS Maintenance Contractor?

There are many qualified EIFS contractors specialized in installing EIFS’s but few contractor’s also specialize in maintenance and repairs, which often requires a range of other skills, including, but not limited to working around existing exterior trim details and existing windows, wall repair and joining new EIFS with existing features without the appearance of a patch job. Having repair experience also includes consideration for site constraints such as building occupants, existing landscaping and surrounding development, which the average EIFS contractor doesn’t necessarily have.
