Your building’s exterior plays an integral role in protecting your home or business from moisture, cold, heat, and anything else Mother Nature has in store. If you’re considering an exterior renovation, or are constructing a new building, consider an Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS).
AMP Concept Canada in Calgary offers stucco, masonry, and EIFS installation for exterior renovations and new builds. Here is more information about EIFS.
What is EIFS?
EIFS is also known as Exterior Wall Insulation Systems or External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems. Essentially, it’s a cladding system that gives your building’s exterior and insulated finished surface. Think of it as a thermal wrapping on the exterior walls of your home or business. This façade insulation is then finished with a protective wall coating similar to stucco.
How is EIFS put together?
Depending on the wall material, the system is attached to the outside wall via adhesive or mechanical fasteners. Then there is an insulation board layer, and then reinforcing mesh. Next to the mesh, a basecoat creates an inner moisture barrier. Finally, the finish coat creates the outside moisture barrier. The finish coat is also the decorative finish. You can choose a colour and style.
What are the benefits of EIFS?
EIFS can be installed on new and existing buildings. It can give older homes or buildings a new look and drastically improve thermal performance. Unlike installing interior insulation, which is evasive, this installation process doesn’t disrupt your indoor home life or business operations.
The key benefit of EIFS is its thermal performance. You can increase energy efficiency and decrease energy bills while boosting curb appeal and property value. You’ll lower energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint. Overall, EIFS gives a high return on investment.
In addition, EIFS eliminates condensation on walls and ceilings, assists with soundproofing, and is very durable, lasting for years to come.
