Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) are multi-layered exterior wall systems that are used on both commercial buildings and homes.  They provide superior energy efficiency and offer much greater design flexibility than other cladding products.
EIFS was developed in Europe and was initially used to retrofit solid masonry walls.  EIFS were introduced in North America in the 1960’s and became very popular in the 1970’s due to the oil embargo.  EIFS were first used on commercial buildings and later, on homes.
The growing popularity of EIFS is due to the fact that few, if any, competitive materials offer such a wide range of desirable product benefits  Chief among these are superior energy efficiency and virtually unlimited design flexibility and durability.


Today, EIFS account for a very large portion of the Canadian commercial and residential exterior wall markets.
EIFS typically consists of the following components:

- Insulation board, made of polystyrene or extruded foam, which is secured to the exterior wall surface with specially formulated adhesive and/or mechanical attachment
- A durable, water-resistant base coat, which is applied on top of the insulation and reinforced with fiber glass mesh for added strength
- An attractive and durable finish coat-typically using acrylic co-polymer technology-which is both colorfast and crack-resistant.
