    eifs stains

    I have tried F-8 on rust stains from the gutters that has dripped down onto the EIFS siding. F-8didnt touch it! I diluted 8oz into a gallon.
    Just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this surface and can reccomend what the heck to use. wish I had a pic but I dont.
    any ideas?
    The gutters seem to look like they are galvanized rather than painted or powder coated.

    I have run into stains on eifs before that just won't come out and painting is the only option...had some recently that even onerestore would not pull out. Guess it is because this stuff is so porous

    Same here.. One Restore and other specialty acids can also leave bright spots. I usually let the customer choose which they prefer.

    True. That's why I suggest that we will "lighten" the stains.

    Paint.

    If it's stained it's stained.I must be an oddball on this stuff because I never spray any of that stuff.If my housewash doesn't clean it it's stained.I will up the strength if I think it's organic but other than that it's still stained.

    Re: eifs stains

    Great Suggestion on the "OneRestore" It worked fairly well. definetly lightened the stain however it didnt rid the EIFS of the stains.
    I did for Sh*ts and giggles tried it on the calcium build up. holy crap it ate it up! I tried a concrete cleaner, muriatic and one restore and one restore did great! and seems to be less toxic that the mu=riatic and doesnt etch like muriatic. it is like five time the costs but worth it IMHO
    thanks for the advice!
