Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) have become a popular choice for commercial construction, particularly for office buildings, hotels and resorts. EIFS construction not only provides unlimited aesthetic design options but it also helps building owners meet increasingly stringent energy codes.

EIFS provide unique and eye-catching finishes while helping to reduce construction time and costs versus alternative cladding systems.

The EIFS system consists of multiple layers:

  • A continuous water resistive, air-weather barrier applied over the substrate 
  • An adhesive layer to affix the insulating EPS board 
  • A base coat layer with embedded reinforcing mesh to provide surface hardness
  • A textured top coat finish
