Is an EIFS the same as Synthetic Stucco?
Often referred to as synthetic stucco, EIFS is not stucco. There are a number of versions of EIFS. The most basic and common EIFS is called a barrier EIFS (also known as a traditional or conventional EIFS). Another type is called EIFS with Drainage, which is a barrier EIFS to which a water drainage capability has been added. An additional benefit of EIFS is the option to add architectural details that are composed of the same materials. EIFS mouldings or as they are commonly referred to, stucco mouldings, come in a large variety of shapes and sizes. They are widely used on residential and commercial projects in North America and are gaining popularity worldwide. EIFS is typically attached to the outside face of exterior walls with adhesive or mechanical fasteners. Adhesives are commonly used to attach EIFS to gypsum board, cement board, or concrete substrates.
