Stucco and EIFS Cladding

Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems

EIFS construction cladding (Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems) adds synthetic material to the traditional stucco process, allowing for better drainage in areas that receive more rain. You can feel even better about your choice because EIFS cladding is good for the environment, resistant to weather elements, and requires little maintenance. Many of our customers appreciate that EIFS is customizable, and can be available in a variety of colors, textures, and combinations. Perhaps the best feature is the durability it brings to the traditional stucco process.

What Exactly is EIFS?

Basically, EIFS cladding is a layer underneath your stucco that creates an insulated, water-resistant, and protective barrier. Adhesive or fasteners connect the barrier to the insulation board and create a drainage plane between the layers. Varying types of mesh can then be used to fasten it to the insulation board, after which the stucco is applied. EIFS claddings will deliver an impressive performance in moisture and thermal control compared to other materials, such as brick and siding. 

Correct Installation Yields Durability

Stucco and EIFS cladding provide an exceptional return on your investment when they are property constructed by a skilled professional. These materials require expert craftsmen who have been trained and certified to properly mix and apply them. Our experienced team understands how to properly install these materials so that you won’t experience cracks, moisture leaks, or costly repairs. When you want stucco and EIFS done correctly for a durable finish, you need more than just a handyman or a general contractor.
