    Jeff,

    If that is barrier EIFS, the no weep screed would be required as it was (yeah, right) a "barrier" system.

    If it was a newer EIFS with a drainage plane behind it, then a weep would be needed.

    As I recall (I'm not an EIFS person), the bottom of barrier EIFS still required an accessory protecting the bottom edge - Scott P. or one of the other EIFS experts here will swat at me if I am wrong, or may confirm if I am correct ... either way - I'll duck.

    That makes doing a re-roof difficult.

    It either needed the plastic accessory or to be backwrapped
