Stucco vs. EIFS

Many people use the words stucco and EIFS interchangeably; however, they are not the same. Stucco is Portland cement plaster while EIFS is an acrylic-based system that is applied over an insulated board. A relatively new system (often referred to as synthetic stucco), EIFS addresses many concerns with traditional stucco, the primary one being water resistance. Its insulation capabilities are an additional advantage.

Benefits of EIFS

If you are looking for a durable exterior finish that looks great, requires minimal maintenance and has superior resistance to the elements, then EIFS is definitely a smart choice. Here are the many benefits your investment will deliver:

  • Flexibility of architectural design, colour and finish
  • High R-value and thermal efficiency
  • Greater comfort and energy efficiency
  • Reduction of condensation, a main cause of mould
  • Improved breathability which reduces wet wall issues
  • Resistance to fire and earthquakes
  • A compact alternative to interior insulations
  • Long-lasting and low maintenance
  • Enhancements to suit your specific application requirements
  • Pays for itself in a couple of years
