Exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS)
EIFS: is a general class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface in an integrated composite material system.
EIFS cladding provides great aesthetic advantages in terms of flexibility in color, shape, and texture. EIFS-clad buildings allow the display of water tables, keystones, quoins, arches, and cornices, creating façade depth and facilitating the intended architectural design. EIFS trim and mouldings (i.e., decorative profiles, shapes, and mouldings) are influenced by exposure, safety, and/or structural considerations.
Traditional Stucco/Direct Application (TASF)
A basic stucco assembly over concrete or CMU is applied directly over the approved water-resistive barrier and metal lath with the finish.
