Flexibility and Aesthetics
The versatile design options offered by EIFS with Drainage enable architects and builders to create energy-efficient structures without compromising aesthetics, which can encourage greater adoption of sustainable construction practices. They provide superior energy efficiency and offer much greater design flexibility than other cladding products. Since CI is an inherent component of EIFS with Drainage, it is generally simpler to incorporate CI into exterior wall designs and at greater thickness than with other claddings.
Not only do EIFS with Drainage come in virtually limitless colors and a wide variety of textures, but they can also be fashioned into most any shape or design. EIFS with Drainage can provide the appearance of other claddings such as stucco, brick, stone, wood, metal, etc., but the systems are far more versatile than those legacy materials. EIFS with Drainage can be used to create intricate exterior architectural detailing — including cornices, arches, columns, keystones, cornerstones, special moldings, and decorative accents — that would often be cost prohibitive using conventional construction. EIFS with Drainage can give buildings a striking, distinctive appearance.
