Beavercreek EIFS Renovation

Posted on Posted in EIFS, Renovation & Repair

It seems there are an unending supply of buildings in the Dayton area. Many times, the new technology and mechanical requirements push owners to new locations - but there are ways to upgrade existing buildings to meet today’s needs. Following are pictures of such a use. This was an old building in Beavercreek which was renovated to a new use and “look.”

The product used on this building was an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) with a hi-grade color fade resistant finish. The main part of the building has 1-1/2” foam mechanically fastened to the existing masonry, thus providing an additional R-value of approximately R6 to the structure. If you wish to discuss the possibilities for your client’s next building, Ken Oren will be glad to help.

These pictures show some of the problem substrates that the new EIFS system had to cover.


The brick protruded 1/2” in the offset pattern and in the split-faced brick as seen in the upper top photos.


The picture with the blue stripe shows the deterioration of the mortar due to cap leaks and infiltration from the back side.

The Dayton Bureau for Lath and Plaster is funded by contractors through the Dayton area Plasterer’s Union. It seeks to promote quality work through the use of trained craftsmen. If you have project details or specifications, Ken Oren is available for questions. There is no charge to architects when the project in question is offered to local bidders. The Bureau has purchased ASTM Section C and AutoCAD LT for reference and convenience in addressing design issues. If you wish to email an item for review to, your query will be promptly addressed.
