Over the years EIFS (synthetic stucco systems) have received a lot of bad press. Although some was deserved, it was caused by untrained installers that hurt the industry.
Our history as a company consists of repairing hundreds of bad installations. These improper installations were all lacking simple key elements of the wall assembly; missing Diverter Flashing at the roof/wall intersection, perimeter sealants, and improperly flashed windows just to name a few. However, the reality is that a properly installed EIFS System will offer the building owner decades of energy savings that are unsurpassed by any other wall cladding. The US Department of Energy has identified the EIFS System as the MOST energy efficient wall cladding on the market today and it is eighty percent more effective then the next best wall cladding. A recent engineering study proved that EIFS Systems breathe just as well as brick, vinyl, & wood claddings (diffusing any vapor trapping myths).
Keith Moore has previously worked for Sto Corp. and has a vast knowledge in the proper installation of EIFS Systems. As a company, we are members in AWCI and certified by several major manufacturers.
