EIFS torn off and replaced with stucco
in Ashburn, VA
No flashing over window is typical for these EIFS houses. Window was replaced. The door was replaced the second time.
Light foam backer rod absorbs and traps water against windows and should never be used for this. A hard rubber type backer rod is made for sealing around windows.
Custom made flashing is put on over bricks.
Protecto Wrap is folded over the back of the window. Sealing the window after the stucco is done is like shutting the barn door when the horses have gone.
Window surrounds and details are REAL cement and REAL sand. Finish is natural white. No foam to rot the windows
Keystones are REAL precast keystones.
Arches are formed with correx and styrofoam and filled with white portland and white sand.
Synthetic finish to match original is rubbed with a plastic float.

NEW: Half inch pea gravel is used in the finish.
OLD: Matches on the money.
