We provide the entire range of services necessary to repair or replace sections of Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS), stucco, or what is commonly called Dryvit®, the name of one of the leading products. Most repairs involve the use of a hand or circular saw to cut around the damaged EIFS area down to the substrate, exposing a neat, uniform-size area slightly larger than the damage area. We then grind down the finish until we expose the existing base coat layer.
The next step is to apply new base coat and mesh overlapping onto existing exposed base coat layer. Once the base coat is fully dry, we will apply a new finish and blend it into the existing finish, precisely matching the texture with the surrounding area.
Depending on the situation, and due to environmental conditions, dirt, and exposure will alter the existing color slightly. In that case, we would then recommend a final weather coating to be applied to the total wall surface to ensure color uniformity between patched areas and the existing finish coat.
Mortar joint tuckpointing is a very common masonry practice that consists of removing old mortar and replacing it without removing the stones. Stones can virtually last forever, but the mortar holding them together eventually starts to crack and crumble.
At Houck, we can satisfy all of your commercial tuckpointing needs. We don’t shy away from complicated or tough jobs. Our focus on safety, quality and performance means we take the time to do the job right, and provide your business or operation with real value.
Over time, your masonry will degrade. That’s just the nature of combining bricks, stones and mortar. When installed correctly, masonry can last for many years with little or no maintenance. However, when the time comes to restore or rebuild your terracotta, façade masonry or brickwork, a lot of planning is required.
