E.I.F.S. Services

EIFS Repair

E.I.F.S. stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish System.

E.I.F.S. is a cladding system that consists of a thin layer of reinforced stucco applied directly to the surface of an insulating plastic foam board.

E.I.F.S. provides exterior walls with an insulated finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system. It is a lightweight synthetic wall cladding that includes foam plastic insulation and thin synthetic coatings.

E.I.F.S. are proprietary systems of a particular E.I.F.S. producer and consist of specific components. E.I.F.S. are not generic products made from common separate materials. To function properly, E.I.F.S. needs to be architecturally designed and installed as a system.

There are a number of versions of E.I.F.S. The most basic and common E.I.F.S. is called a barrier E.I.F.S. (also known as a traditional or conventional E.I.F.S.). Another type is called an E.I.F.S. with Drainage, which is a barrier E.I.F.S. to which a water drainage capability has been added.

A basic E.I.F.S. includes only the insulation and EIFS materials (coatings, adhesives, etc.). Other types of EIFS may also include plastic edge trim, water-resistive barriers, a drainage cavity, and other accessories.
