Definition: synthetic stucco-like exterior cladding system

Why can EIFS be a problem?

  • Deficient caulk joints

  • Lack of caulk joints

  • Improper or lack of diverters

  • Improper abutment to dissimilar materials

  • Damaged surfaces

Is an EIFS problem repairable?

Most times yes. Many homes require minimal repairs or maintenance. Some homes have required complete removal of the EIFS.

Be informed!
Hire a trained professional to inspect your EIFS. No siding material is maintenance free. EIFS is no different and will require maintenance and periodic repairs.
