EIFS (Exterior Insulation & Finishing System)
EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finishing System) today are one of the most tested and well researched claddings in the construction industry. This EIFS system is a durable, non-load bearing, exterior wall cladding system that is cost efficient while providing energy saving and reduced environmental impact over the life of the structure when compared to brick, stucco, and fiberboard siding. EIFS cladding is also a leading product in relation to thermal and moisture control. EIFS must be correctly installed and properly detailed if the cladding is to perform properly. Otherwise, moisture can get behind the systems and cause damage, just as it can with wood siding, brick or any other exterior. This finish system application comes in a wide variety of colors and texture resembling a similarity to stone, or stucco, and is durable enough to maintain its original appearance over a long period of time.
