What is EIFS Siding (Exterior Insulation and Finish System)
An EIFS system is, in a very general sense, an exterior building surface system made up of:Insulation board usually polystyrene or polyisocyanurate , which can be described as heavy duty specially formulated Styrofoam. The insulation board is attached to an exterior wall substrate by either the use of special adhesives or by mechanical means. Over the insulation board is a base coat that is reinforced with a fiberglass mesh for added strength. Over the top of all this is a finish coat that is an acrylic polymer.
EIFS System are generally classified as one of two types; a barrier system or a wall drainage system. Both types are designed to keep moisture from penetrating from outside your home or building to the interior.
EIFS Siding Problems
EIFS has been the source of many problems for home owners, building owners and property managers throughout the Portland OR and Vancouver Washington areas. The weather conditions are here are not suited for the use of EIFS; the abundant rain of the Pacific Northwest that is most often accompanied by wind, forces moisture into the EIFS wall system through the tiniest of crack or imperfection in the finish. Windows, doors, wall corners, decks, columns, posts, gutters and downspouts, decorative trim, are just a few of the weak points that will cause a failure in an EIFS wall. Once moisture penetrates the system it very often becomes trapped within the EIFS wall system itself. Trapped moisture due to faulty EIFS siding will lead to rotting of the substructure as well as being the perfect breeding ground for mold.
