Stucco and EIFS Construction

The Role of Stucco in Weatherproofing Your Home

Stucco wall construction has been a popular choice throughout history, as it truly stands the test of time. Cement, water, lime, and sand are blended in exact measurements to create a durable exterior for your home. Stucco is a sturdy, long-lasting siding resistant to the elements, helping your home withstand strong winds and heavy rain.

The Role of EIFS in Weatherproofing Your Home

EIFS cladding is a synthetic material added to the traditional stucco process for better water drainage. When properly applied and maintained, stucco and EIFS will provide a weather-resistant barrier to protect your home from moisture penetration for years. EIFS works well in areas that receive a lot of rain.

How Stucco and EIFS Perform in All Seasons

Stucco with EIFS claddings demonstrates impressive moisture and thermal control performance compared to other materials, like brick and siding. These materials will protect your home from rain and snow moisture and provide insulation from both the heat and the cold. An energy-efficient exterior choice, stucco and EIFS are also great for the environment.
