Exterior Insulating Finish System (EIFS)

EIFS, when installed properly is an economical system that provides:

- Energy efficiency

- Stabilization of temperature of the structure

- Aesthetic flexibility

EIFS has had problems in the past from low quality installations causing leakage. The improper sealing of openings and lack of proper expansion joints are two primary causes of problems resulting in water intrusion. When properly installed these problems have been eliminated. The best way to ensure a proper installation is inspecting as the installation is in progress.

Once installed and in service, an inspection can identify problems and early solutions can be implemented, thus reducing the need for expensive repairs.

EEI's EIFS Certified Inspector Neil Otto has been certified by the Exterior Design Institute.
