Reviewed on Customer Lobby “What I liked most about the guys over at Worldgate Plaster & Stucco was that they were very timely. The guys were always right on time with every appointment and they did their work very quickly and efficiently. When they were working they were very courteous and they made sure to not cut corners which I thought was great. When they were finished they cleaned up very well after themselves and I had no issues with how everything turned out.

EIFS Provides Leadership

Posted by on May 25, 2016 in blog | Comments Off on EIFS Provides Leadership

In August 2007, the United States Green Building Council updated the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) scoring system criteria. The new criterion calls for all LEED projects to achieve a minimum of two “Optimizing Energy Performance” points. The effect of the change is to reduce energy in new LEED buildings by a minimum of 14% above ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and 7% for existing building renovations. The criteria also gives up to 8 points for buildings that can show even better energy performance than the minimum. Conceivable a new building showing a 35% better energy...

Reviewed on Customer Lobby “We hired Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Co. to apply stucco on the back of our house and it looks really nice.

We had been wanting to get this done for awhile so we’re satisfied with the results and would recommend them if you’re looking to get a stucco wall placed inside or outside of your home.” Anthony R.

Effective Air Barrier Installation Can Potentially Net 40% Better Energy Efficiency

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in blog | Comments Off on Effective Air Barrier Installation Can Potentially Net 40% Better Energy Efficiency

What’s really cool about the second generation of EIFS (with drainage) is that the liquid applied water-resistive barrier that is included as part of a moisture management strategy is also a very effective air barrier. In no time is there any worry for reverse overlaps, tears, or fastener punctures commonly associated with sheet applied house wraps or building papers. This is because the WRB is completely monolithic and the EIFS is installed with adhesive. This is important because it has been demonstrated by the National Institute of Standards that an effective air barrier on a typical...

EIFS Fits Well Into The 2030 Challenge

Posted by on Mar 7, 2016 in blog | Comments Off on EIFS Fits Well Into The 2030 Challenge

In 2003, Santa Fe Architect Ed Mazria authored a ground shaking assessment of the construction industry, when he reasoned that 48% of our energy is consumed by our buildings. Taking this a step further, Mazria correlated this reasoning to global warming and determined that construction was also responsible for 46% of our nation’s carbon emissions output. In 2006, Mazria challenged the construction industry and, in particular, architects to design new buildings to use 50% less energy than the regional average for that building type. Subsequently, that energy efficiency standard would be...
