EXTERIOR INSULATED FINISHING SYSTEM (EIFS)
Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) is a non-load-bearing, exterior wall-cladding system that boasts excellent water resistance and reduced energy usage and environmental impact. E.I.F.S construction features a high level of flexibility in design, with endless options for color and texture to match your vision.
E.I.F.S can be an economical alternative to wood, brick, stucco and other traditional finishes, with the added benefits of lowered energy costs, expanded design options, and superior insulative properties. When applied properly, EIFS siding will maintain its integrity and appearance for many years on any type of building.
In a 2012 study, E.I.F.S helped reduce energy use by nearly 45% over a 12-month period. And because of E.I.F.S’ sophisticated drainage system, which eliminates moisture before it infiltrates the wall cavity, it’s one of the most water-resistant exterior claddings on the market.
