The title of a recent Durability and Design, which appeared in their January 2015 edition, is entitled A Versatile Cladding for Buildings, There’s more to EIFS than simulating stucco. The article discusses both basic information about EIFS as well as the decorative and specialty finishes the exterior wall cladding system can replicate.
Here are some useful quotes from the article:
Brick, limestone, metal, and granite are just a few of the decorative or specialty finishes EIFS manufacturers can provide, usually at less cost than masonry or architectural metal. The potential for lower expense can help projects meet or come in under budget, while also offering energy benefits unique to EIFS, as noted in ORNL’s study.
From the Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas to St. Marry and St. Mena Coptic Orthodox Church in Cranston, R.I., EIFS is used on every type of commercial, institutional, and governmental building.
The benefits of EIFS have been showcased in several articles already this year, last week’s post showed references to the energy advantages a consumer has when using the exterior wall cladding system.
