Repairing EIFS after the removal of building signage

Signage is a mainstay for retail and commercial buildings. It provides branding, a first appearance and a general acknowledgment of having arrived at the right location. With it comes the changing of tenants, the acquisition of new buildings, and the updating of brands and logos.

Throughout the Twin Cities, along with the US, many of the commercial buildings have some type of EIFS finish. It’s energy efficiency and weather protection in a selection of shapes, colors, and textures that can replicate almost any architectural style or finish material, making EIFS a popular choice for exterior facades.

This means that many of these are signs are installed over EIFS structures. As companies rebrand, and others move location, the removal and installation of new signage takes place.  You might be saying big deal right?

Restored EIFS after the removal of building signage

While there are numerous benefits to EIFS, there is a cosmetic and structural concern when it comes to commercial buildings. Oftentimes when these signs are removed, the EIFS facade is damaged. Not only does this leave the building with an aesthetic problem to fix, but if not repaired correctly can lead to some costly and serious structural issues as well. Due to the nature of how EIFS is composed, damaged EIFS left untreated can quickly lead to water infiltration problems and turn into expensive repairs.
