In this video, I wish to explain a philosophy while demonstrating why I sometimes choose to apply Eisenwall cement plaster manufactured by a “rapid set.” 😉
FYI, Rapid set wrote the book on plastering and concrete products; in other words, this isn’t their first rodeo with cementitious products.
One could simply Google, ‘Rapid set types of cement and stuccos,’ to see how globally their products have helped build bridges and skyscrapers and much more around the world.
Their cementitious products are superior to any and all sold in the USA.
BTW, “Rapid set” manufactures Eisenwall cement plaster.
Eisenenwall cement plaster is still only sold at the professional plastering materials yards and not at any chain stores. For good reasons, which I won’t go into here to keep this as short as possible.
However, a much friendlier version of Eisenwall, called “Rapid Set Stucco,” is sold at Home Depot, Lowes, and many other hardware stores.
It’s sold in ten-or twenty-five-pound boxes for, ‘your connivance,’ or larger bags for us contractors.
Let’s take, for example, the traditional Portland cement stucco bags, on average, cost about 10 to 12 dollars for a 94-pound sack. This you mix with sand and water.
These leading brands have a structural strength of about 1,200 to 1600 PSI after the cure time of usually about 28 days.
Now let’s look at Eisenwall hydraulic cement plasters from an economic standpoint of view.
Eisenwall hydraulic cement plaster cost about 50 to 70 dollars a bag but has a PSI strength of about 3,500 psi after the 28 day cure time.
That’s more than twice the strength of any other famous known brand sold at many top chain large hardware stores. Are resilience and strength the only advantage? Of course not, but I have to keep this topic short.
Most know concrete foundations and walkways have a PSI strength of about 3,000 to 3,500 PSI depending on the size of rocks added to the Portland cement.
Here’s my work philosophy with my chosen field of expertise.💃
Sure, I pay more for all materials.
However, my earned talents and learned material knowledge mean I pass the saving on to you. Example.
If I decide to come only once to apply back to back or both coat of stucco on the same day.
You get the job done faster and with the types of Plastering cement that is at least double the strength.
Plus, for me, and I love this mutual benefit, I may pay three times more for materials, but I only set up once, thus clean up once, less driving and wear and tear on my trucks, and a minimized pollution from waisted gas, less inconvenience to homeowners also.
Who wants to shut down their life to wait for us contractors to gain access to their projects?
This mutual respect or benefit is why I personally am in demand, and no doubt may always be lord willing.
I feel a win-win for both sides.
Fact, If I exchange my talents for another man’s money, it makes sense that I can give this person the same or better results than another plastering contractor at the exact or below cost.
This philosophy with work and family is why some folks generally “lead the field” and enjoy themselves at the same time, like us. 😏
Note: You may also type in any question you may have on Stucco/Plastering issues on our channel, and like magic, a video will appear to explain how it’s done. Then kick back, relax, and enjoy the show! 🍿
