What is “EIFS”?
According to the definitions of the International Building Code and ASTM International, an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) is a nonload bearing, exterior wall cladding system that consists of an insulation board attached either adhesively or mechanically, or both, to the substrate; an integrally reinforced base coat; and a textured protective finish coat.
EIFS with Drainage, which is the system used by Garden State Brickface and Siding, provides a way for moisture that may accumulate in the wall cavity to evacuate.
An Example of an EIFS with Drainage Solution from Garden State Brickface and Siding…
As an example, one of our EIFS with Drainage systems (see schematic) can be used on any substrate, including wood or gypsum sheathings, and is installed without mechanical fasteners. This technique eliminates penetrations through the moisture barrier and effectively improves installation performance.
This particular system is ideal for use on any residential or commercial project demanding advanced moisture drainable design protection.
