    Default EZ-Wall

    I observed this installation today on a retrofitted 40s house in Dallas. The sheathing, where visible, appeard to be 1" Celotex, maybe Quick-R. I cut this piece out of a gable in the attic. I also saw some expanded polystyrene in some places, but only glimpses of it. There was no way to remove any utility escutcheons or cover plates, as they had them all sealed in place.

    As you can see from pictures in the attic at the base of the system in the dormer walls there is expanded metal visible.

    My best guess is that it is Celotex Quick-R Polyiso with some locally manufacturered scheisse called EZ-Wall (an EIFS coating). This is a new one on me. Any ideas?

    Sorry, Not much help here either, and past the due date by now but.
    It appears the installed was also a golfer so he gets a 50% good guy vote for that.
    Or is that your Footjoy toolbag, in which case you get 100% good guy votes
    Did you call the # on the bucket?

    Wayne: OK. Nope, not my golf crap. I called the number, but they had kicked the bucket!

    AD,
    it looks like the insulation installed on EPMD or flat roofs.
    someone must have said "I'll stuff this in there"

    Type in your browser for ES Reports. In the search box of that web page, type in EZ Wall.

    You will get a list of related reference. The first one has the testing data

    This link may work as well

    ICC-ES Search Results

    or this one

    http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/UBC/5146.pdf


    You may want to download the pdf reader called Fox-it reader. Free and very good
