EIFS stands for “Exterior Insulation Finish System” It is a product which uses plasticizers, additives that increase the plasticity or fluidity of a material, to modify Traditional Cement Stucco and make it more flexible. This allows applications in a thinner coating which saves time and material. The system also includes an insulation layer that increase and upgrade system and building performances.
Eifs reduces heating bills in two ways, by reducing air infiltration into your walls, and by reducing heating transferred through walls by adding insulation to their exterior. Another great benefit of synthetic stucco is its allure, from basic EIFS with flat trim, columns, pilasters, keystones, flowers, and elaborated molding. You can find a wide range of textures, colors and design options. You should consider EIFS stucco to get a new look for you house or project that will protect your patrimony.
