AWCI - EIFS-Doing It Right - EIFSmart Contractor

Custom Drywall, certified in EIFS, installs a variety of EIFS systems. Exterior Insulation and Finish System is a type of exterior wall cladding system providing exterior walls with an insulation finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system. The cladding system is either attached adhesively, mechanically or both to the substrate.

The EIMA, EIFS Industry Member Association, states EIFS typically consists of the following components:

  • An optional water-resistive barrier (WRB) that covers the substrate
  • A drainage plane between the WRB and the insulation board is most commonly achieved with vertical ribbons of adhesive applied over the WRB
  • Insulation board typically made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) which is secured with an adhesive or mechanically to the substrate
  • Glass-fiber reinforcing mesh embedded in the base coat
  • A water-resistant base coat applied on top of insulation to serve as a weather barrier
  • A finish coat typically uses colorfast and crack-resistant acrylic co-polymer technology

We go over and above manufacturer’s certifications, and each of our installers become AWCI trained, tested, and certified.

The EIFSmart Contractor is a recognition awarded to companies committed to quality workmanship in exterior insulation and finish systems.

We’re committed to giving our commercial customers an EIFS product that’s worry-free and beautiful.
