Why Is is so Important to Caulk Stucco EIFS Correctly?

Eifs Stucco Repair

It is vitally important that you correctly caulk stucco EIFS on your buildings, hi-rises and apartments. While stucco EIFS can provide an absolutely beautiful appearance for your building, it’s important to work with professionals during installation and maintenance in order to ensure that it is properly installed and caulked in order to maintain a waterproof seal on your building’s exterior. If your stucco EIFS is not properly caulked, these are some of the problems you could be exposing your building to:

  • Water getting behind your EIFS can damage the EIFS and reduce its lifespan, resulting in the need to undergo replacement more quickly.
  • Leaking allows water to get into your building which can cause extensive damage to the walls, leading to costly repairs or replacement of any corrupted walls.
  • Many health hazards can arise from water getting into a building where it should not be and is allowed to sit there, including mold and mildew that can have significant health effects on anyone inside of your building who is exposed to it.
  • Water damage can create unsightly discoloration for your facility, resulting in an unpleasing appearance and the need to repaint or replace affected areas.
