Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) is a non-load-bearing, exterior wall system. It is composed of an insulation board attached to a substrate, a base coat, and a finish coat.
A properly installed EIFS system will not allow water to reach the substrate, so we carefully build an EIFS system with proper attention to water management. On residential projects, we sometimes install water management barriers outside the wood substrate or we mechanically fasten to residential house wrap to prepare the exterior wall. On commercial projects, redundant water management procedures such as flashing, weep holes, and drainage planes are constructed to preserve system integrity.
Our EIFS crew has experience installing plastic or fiberglass mesh as specified by the architect or home owner. We often place various foams and architectural moldings to create artistic accents according to the architectural drawings. We have experience with many different textures, colors, and trims.
Our Kelly Systems EIFS crew has more than 20 years of experience in field-applied EIFS jobs. We are certified to install Dryvit outsulation ® systems and STO ® external wall insulation systems. We offer a workmanship warranty on our EIFS projects.
