A building’s beauty goes far deeper than its aesthetics. At Excladint, we devote ourselves to applying EIF Systems that will not only look good but that will also endure the tests of time. The EIF systems that we apply follow the up-to-date National Building Code of Canada. We work closely with EIFS manufactures to ensure that the applications of their products are being respected as per their specifications. All of the EIF Systems that our team applies are in accordance with the National Research Council of Canada’s “Canadian Construction Material Center” (CCMC)
The driving force behind the Excladint application is the dedication to quality control. Our team approaches each project with this in mind: every project is approached with the utmost attention to detail and a patient, steady and skilled hand.
Excladint prides itself on growing with the industry. For this reason, we are continuously working with EIFS manufacturers and the EIFS Council of Canada to educate our staff in new and evolving technologies. Therefore, there is no problem for which we cannot find a solution, and no demand is too great to be met.
- Attachments: Attachments can either be adhesive or mechanical fasteners depending on the specifications of the manufacturer and the respective CCMC report. The adhesive or mechanical fasteners act as attachments to the insulation boards.
- Insulation Boards: The insulation boards used are geometrically defined. This entails that the EIFS allows for drainage in order to evacuate accidental wind driven rain and/or moisture. The design of the geometrically defined drainage insulation boards depends on each manufacturer’s EIFS.
- Lamina: The lamina consists of the Fibreglass Mesh, Base Coat, Primer (optional) and Finish Coat.
- Fibreglass Mesh: The Mesh allows the lamina to contract and retract to eliminate cracking.
- Base Coat: The Base Coat acts as a reinforcing layer to the Insulation Board and imbeds the Fibreglass Mesh. This coating requires on average 24 hours to cure.
- Primer: The primer acts as a coloured paint layer that is applied before the Finish Coat. This stage is optional depending on the Finish Coat colour chosen.
- Finish Coat: The Finish Coat is the final stage that creates the aesthetic beauty of the building. It is a flexible coating that has unsurpassed longevity due to its high content in polymer. This coating requires on average 24 hours to cure.
At Excladint, we guarantee our workmanship with a warranty that exceeds industry standards. Please contact us for CCMC approved EIF Systems that are tended towards your project.
