From its durability to the low level of maintenance and long lifespan, there are many reasons to choose a stucco finish for your home. After all, there is a reason stucco has been used as a building material for centuries. When you include EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems) with your stucco exterior, you are adding a layer of protection that acts as an insulated barrier against moisture. With over 45 years of experience in stucco installation and EIFS construction, Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company will explain how stucco and EIFS complement each other and provide protection on the exterior of your home.
How Stucco & EIFS Work Together
Stucco is comprised mainly of cement, lime, water, and sand. These natural resources are blended to create an exterior that is not only sturdy and durable but pleasing to the eye. EIFS construction cladding adds synthetic material to the traditional stucco process that allows for better drainage, which is great for areas that receive more rain. Together, stucco and EIFS will create a low-maintenance and long-lasting finish on your home.
Why Include EIFS with Your Stucco Finish?
When you apply EIFS before the stucco finish, you will get a water-resistant barrier that creates a drainage plane between the layers. Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company features products that will maximize energy efficiency, reducing both the environmental impact and your monthly energy costs. Simply put, EIFS will give your home better insulation, better energy efficiency, and better protection against moisture. The U.S. Department of Energy even sponsored a study, which determined that EIFS outperformed other exterior materials.
