Residential Repairs and Maintenance

Exterior Repair and Design Solutions provides a complete “envelope” of services for your home's exterior. We specialize in EIF systems but we work on all types of home exteriors. Whether you have a small repair to physical damage, or a large repair to damaged sub-sheathing, or complete exterior recladding, we would love to work with you! We know Chicago weather can be brutal on your home's exterior. Routine maintenance and repairs to your home's exterior will help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

If your EIFS home hasn't been inspected in the last year or two, we recommend starting with an EIFS inspection of your exterior. Having your EIFS exterior inspected is the best way to determine if you have moisture intrusion issues and to assist in identifying a complete scope of repairs and maintenance.

If repairs are extensive, often clients rely on us to identify the most critical items to address first, and then phase their repairs into multiple projects, if necessary, to accommodate a budget and/or changing seasons and temperatures.

We provide the following services for your exterior cladding:

  • Schedule EIFS inspections

  • Repairs to EIFS, sub-sheathing and framing due to moisture intrusion

  • Repairs to physical damage or delaminating finish.

  • Power washing, cleaning and re-coating of EIFS

  • Caulking/Sealants – complete removal and replacement

  • Repairs associated with roof leaks.

  • Upgrade flashing to current industry standards – kickout, diverter and end damn flashings, deck and balcony flashing

  • Window and Door Replacements and repairs – all major manufacturers

  • Replacement of gutters and downspouts

  • Soffit and Fascia – repair or replace

  • Recladding – full or partial removal of existing EIFS exterior cladding and replacement with brick, stone, traditional stucco, cedar, fiber cement board and other claddings.

  • Custom built stone, brick, stucco, or EIFS mailboxes

  • Tuckpointing

While keeping your home comfortable is a worthy investment in itself, updating and maintaining your home's exterior can also help you financially. A properly insulated home can save you hundreds of dollars on heating and cooling costs, and an attractive, high quality exterior can greatly enhance the value of your home.
