Frequently Asked Questions About Synthetic Stucco Repair in Tucson
What is synthetic stucco?
Synthetic stucco is more technically known as Exterior Insulating and Finish System (EIFS). Unlike traditional stucco which is made from a mixture of sand, cement, lime, and water, synthetic stucco is a multi-layered exterior finish that’s been used in European construction since shortly after World War II. It came to the U.S. in the 1960s and has been growing in popularity since then.
How is synthetic stucco installed?
Synthetic stucco, or EIFS, is applied by first preparing a clean and even surface, followed by installing a water-resistive barrier (WRB). Next, insulation boards are adhered to this barrier, providing the foundation for the stucco. A base coat with embedded fiberglass mesh is then applied for reinforcement, and finally, a textured finish coat gives the desired appearance. Proper curing, protection, and sealing around openings ensure the stucco’s durability and resistance to the elements. Hiring a professional contractor guarantees precision and adherence to product-specific guidelines.
What are the different types of synthetic stucco?
Synthetic stucco, known as Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS), comes in three main types: Traditional EIFS with a polystyrene insulation board, EIFS with drainage which includes a system for moisture evacuation, and Direct Applied Exterior Finish System (DEFS) that applies directly without an insulation board. Each type offers unique installation and functional characteristics, catering to different building needs and moisture management requirements.
What is synthetic stucco made of?
Synthetic stucco, or EIFS, is a multi-layered exterior finish composed of an insulating foam board, a fiberglass mesh for reinforcement, a polymer-cement base coat, and a flexible acrylic finish coat. Unlike traditional stucco made from cement, sand, and lime, EIFS combines insulation with a durable and aesthetic finish. This system offers both energy efficiency and an attractive exterior appearance.
How long does synthetic stucco last?
Synthetic stucco, or EIFS, typically has a lifespan of 25 to 40 years. Its durability depends on expert installation, environmental conditions, and consistent maintenance. Choosing an experienced contractor and addressing minor issues immediately ensures its durability and aesthetic appeal for many years.
How to clean synthetic stucco?
When cleaning synthetic stucco (EIFS), avoid power washing to prevent damage. Instead, use a mix of gentle detergent and water, scrubbing softly with a soft-bristled brush. For mold or mildew, apply a solution of one part bleach to ten parts water. Always rinse thoroughly after cleaning, and steer clear of harsh chemicals to maintain the stucco’s finish and durability. For particularly tough spots or a comprehensive clean, seek expertise from professionals familiar with EIFS care.
What are the pros and cons of synthetic stucco?
Synthetic stucco, or EIFS, offers advantages like enhanced insulation, improved energy efficiency, a customizable appearance, design flexibility, and durability. It’s lightweight and when properly installed, can act as a barrier to water infiltration. However, improper installation can lead to water damage, potential pest issues, and can be perceived as lower quality compared to traditional stucco. The initial costs can also be higher, and repairs might be more intricate. It’s crucial to engage trained professionals for installation to ensure long-term benefits and minimize risks.
How to repair synthetic stucco?
To repair synthetic stucco, first inspect the damage to assess its extent. Clean the affected area, and for minor cracks, use an exterior caulk to fill and smooth them. For larger damages, remove the damaged stucco and underlying foam insulation, then replace the foam and apply an EIFS base coat, embedding fiberglass mesh for strength. Once the base coat dries, apply the textured EIFS finish coat to match the existing stucco. After curing, paint the area if needed. For best results and significant damages, consider consulting a professional EIFS contractor.
