Due to continuing mold issues and unsuccessful attempts in the past to fix it, the Grayling Fire Department is turning to EIFS to address it. After only 8 years in existence the building has continued to be plagued with mold issues stemming from the cold getting through the blocks on the exterior, that lack proper insulation.
“The cold comes through the blocks, it condensates on the inside of the building, which supports the mold spores and they just grow,” said Grayling Fire Department Chief Russell Strohpaul Jr.
The continuous insulation that the EIFS provides will help the Grayling Fire Department achieve their goals of better insulating the apparatus of their building.
EIFS Research, conducted by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and supported by the Department of Energy, has validated that EIFS are the “best performing cladding” in relation to thermal and moisture control when compared to brick, stucco, and cementitious fiberboard siding.
