EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing System)
EIFS Is the next generation In the Stucco world. It is comprised of a spreadable vapor barrier then a Type two styrofoam is adhered to the wall with a notched trowel almost like a tile would be laid on a floor. the styrofoam is then expertly sanded and leveled followed by a layer of nylon fiberglass mesh that is laid into a 3/8 coat of acrylic base coat. this is followed finally buy an a acrylic finish.
The benefits of using an EIFS system lie primarily in its insulation value, compared to a traditional scratch and double system with a virtually non existent R value a standard EIFS system has an R value of nearly 8 and I don’t have to remind you how much your winter heating bills are but a Great EIFS Reno can not only increase the value of your home but also decrease your Enmax bill! (standing ovation) not to mention the fast cure times of the acrylic product make it ideal for renovations, reducing the cure times allows us to get the job done without having to leave the scratch and double to cure and leave your house half finished for weeks just sitting there like the ugly duckling on the block interfering with your daily life. Not to mention your reducing your carbon footprint by using less gas to heat your home.
Conventional Stucco (Scratch and Double)
Ah Convention Stucco, good ol faithful. Has been used in Calgary for decades and is durable and cost effective and can be coated with acrylic finish to look just like its counter part EIFS. It can be heavily textured to match existing finishes or projects of unique texture requirements.
The benefits of using Conventional Stucco lie primarily in your pants! In your wallet specifically. being comprised almost entirely of sand and cement the materials are far cheaper than EIFS systems. Conventional Systems are more prone to cracks and Staining as well as Efferesance or the minerals of the scratch coats leeching through the finish coat to produce white stains running down the walls. Done properly, these problems can be avoided all together and that is why choosing your Stucco Contractor should not be taken too lightly.
