Application Procedure

  1. EIFS accessories shall be erected true to line (allowable tolerance of ¼” in 10′ (6.4 mm in 3.05m), level, plumb, squared or curved.
  2. Casing beads at grade (drainage or non-drainage) shall be placed not less than 1″ (25 mm) below the joint formed by the foundation and framing and placed not less than 6″ (152 mm) above raw earth or 2″ (51 mm) above paved surfaces.
  3. Drainage systems shall have the weather-resistive barrier lapped into the casing bead.
  4. Attach accessories to the substrate in such a manner as to ensure proper alignment during the application of the EIFS. Accessories shall be secured at not more than 16″ (406 mm) centers for non-nailable substrates and 8″ (203 mm) on center for nailable.
  5. Seal all butt joints, intersections, ends and corners at time of installation using an elastomeric sealant. Allow silicone-based sealant to fully cure before proceeding with insulation board application.

Place casing bead to allow for proper sealant joint width, typically 1/2″ (13 mm).

For drainage systems place sealant joint behind drain holes.
