We were to repair/replace the damaged EIFS system of the south façade of Freedom Hall that was caused by wind at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Kentucky Venues, in Louisville, KY. There was also a large section of the EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) that was removed because it became so un-attached that it needed to be replaced by the full system. This job was approx. 11,000 sq. ft. EIFS steps include: Fastening plywood to the stud walls; using mechanical fasteners to attach the insulation board to the substrate (plywood); apply a reinforcing mesh; put on a base coat, which forms the inner portion of the primary moisture barrier; Lastly; spread on the finish coat, which forms the outer portion of the primary moisture barrier.
