EIFS - Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems Information

Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) are designed to provide an exterior insulation shell and create an attractive finish for buildings.

The system consists of selected components which can be applied either at the job site or in the shop. It can be applied to directly to any type of exterior wall construction.

System components include:

    • Rigid flame retardant insulation board on any approved sheathing
    • Corrosive resistant fasteners, either nails or screws, selected for designed depth of penetrations
    • Galvanized expanded metal lath, woven wire or fiberglass reinforcing fabric
    • Fiberglass-reinforced, polymer modified portland cement plaster base coat and a polymer based elastomeric finish coat.

Together these produce a durable weather- and impact-resistant surface over the insulation board.
