Toll Brothers letter

PROOF OF CONSUMER FRAUD

Letter from toll brothers certifies synthetic stucco is real stucco.. Why do they have to lie to the public ?

Water is trapped by this water proof finish

Lack of flashing causes leak on this chimney.

Water is trapped by this water proof finish which can rot anything underneath. This is the old Western One Coat "stucco" that was used heavily out west several years ago and became notorious for leaks. Band on right is foam EIFS. Pulte homes was sued in Florida for leaks in new houses using this acrylic "stucco".

This is the same finish material used on
EIFS that trapped water on EIFS applications

Photographic proof that the acrylic (fake) finish traps water behind the wall.

This is the same finish material used on EIFS that trapped water on EIFS applications. Some call this system "hardcoat", it is a lower skilled and cheaper substitute for stucco. Portland cement stucco is porous and less likely to trap water.

Synthetic stucco has a rubbery paint
with plastic sand as a finish coat.

Synthetic stucco has a rubbery paint with plastic "sand" as a finish coat.

Over all thickness is about 3/8"- half of the standard thickness for stucco. The portland cement association defines the thickness for stucco as 5/8" - 7/8". This should read minimum thickness. The base coat here is 1/4" thick. The thickness is defined using a metal casing bead 1/4" thick, as opposed to the 3/4" casing we use

Here's how we did it:

Toll Brothers lost its lawsuit that made them tear off the EIFS on over 140 houses in Northern Virginia on the grounds of fraud

EIFS QUOINS !

That's not what the letter says. Toll Brothers lost its lawsuit that made them tear off the EIFS on over 140 houses in Northern Virginia on the grounds of fraud. Toll Bros. claimed in their advertising that these house had "stucco details" when there was no stucco at all, but EIFS details. The houses were replaced with synthetic stucco like this, and guess what, more EIFS details !

The letter claims there is no EIFS on this house

EIFS AROUND DOORS

Also note no flashing over doors. Wood is soft and paint is peeling prematurely. About 2 dollars to put flashing over these doors would have solved this problem. The letter claims there is no EIFS on this house.
