Commercial Painting » EIFS Sign Bands
First thing is first, What is EIFS?
EIFS stands for Exterior Insulation Finishing System. “EIFS is a general class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface in an integrated composite material system”. In this application we are referencing the band that runs the top of most retail and restaurant buildings and in particular the portion the building sign is placed. As tenants move in and out EIFS repair becomes needed when signage changes or is absent.
There are two primary options when it come to repairs. Either we can repair it by resurfacing the sign band or we can caulk in holes, prepare the surface for paint and then re-paint. To resurface the EIFS you will have a ‘like new’ finish and is the recommended repair, but requires specific techniques and additional time. When caulking, it is a much quicker and economical fix, but you will still see slight imperfections in the EIFS.
