Reviewed on Customer Lobby “I rate Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Co. as outstanding. They gave me a call a few days before they were coming, turned up on time, and just got on with the job. Their workmen were excellent and worked hard, and everything that was on the invoice was done. They cleaned and patched the stucco, and also did painting–and the finished product is excellent.

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...
