EIFS and Stucco Repair
EIFS and Stucco Repair describes the methods of repairing the exterior surfaces of buildings for longevity and aesthetics. EIFS stands for exterior insulation and finish system and describes a class of non-load bearing cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface in a composite material system.
When properly installed, stucco (a cement or lime-based plaster) is about as long-lasting a cladding possible—100 years is not uncommon. But when big cracks or blisters appear, the time to make repairs is right away, before the damage grows.
