EIFS Information Kit

Over the past five years, the EIFS (synthetic stucco) industry has been at the center of a controversy as to whether or not its products are effective wall claddings. We believe that the fundamental issue is whether any wall cladding can be an effective barrier against moisture intrusion if builders and contractors fail to adhere to sound construction practices. Compelling evidence is now surfacing that moisture intrusion, especially in the wall cavity, is a problem that reflects shoddy construction practices and inadequate flashing, rather than the merits of any particular wall cladding.
