EIFS, or exterior insulation and finish system, is a standard class of wall cladding that provides exterior with both insulation and water-resistant qualities.
Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems (EIFS) are a more advanced kind of stucco system. They provide continuous insulation by design, helping home and business owners to meet the new energy codes without doing anything special. They also allow architects to experiment with design and instill as much aesthetic beauty as necessary.
The history of EIFS dates back to 1960. Initially, they were only utilized for commercial buildings. After initial success, their use spread to residential buildings as well. EIFSs have attained a special place in the construction industry over time. They are a well-researched and time-tested cladding system.
Research conducted by the Department of Energy, USA and Oak Ridge National Library indicates that EIFSs are the best performing claddings in terms of moisture and thermal control. They are far superior to cementitious fibreboard siding, stucco, and bricks. As mentioned above, they also fully comply with modern energy codes by providing continuous insulation.
EFIS is an eco-friendly choice to insulate your walls. They not only help you reduce your carbon imprint on the environment but they also provide you with maximum energy savings.
EIFSs are the best choice to save energy and create a beautiful curb appeal to your home or business.
