What is EIFS Stucco?
EIFS stucco stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish System. Although there is some debate about whether or not EIFS stucco in Calgary should actually be called synthetic stucco, many agree that the term is accurate. The material has been in use since the 1980s, at least by home builders in North America. It started as a material for commercial and industrial building construction before later being used on residential homes.
Calgary EIFS is composed of three layers applied in a six step process. The first layer is an insulation board, the middle layer is a polymer material and base coat, and the exterior layer is an acrylic coat. The material is said to be softer than traditional stucco but still very durable when installed correctly. Water or moisture should be prevented from seeping through EIFS stucco because when it gets trapped the wood and sheathing inside begins to rot. This will cause the bonds between each layer to loosen.Given enough knowledge, you can correctly install EIFS stucco or synthetic stucco and reap the benefits it has to offer than suffer the problems it can give when applied incorrectly.
