Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) is a type of building product that provides exterior walls with an insulated finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system.

Basic EIFS (called Barrier EIFS) are generally made up of three (3) parts;

  • A layer of foam insulation

  • A layer consisting of a fiberglass reinforcing mesh ( or "mesh") embedded in a cementitous adhesive

  • A final topcoat, usually referred to as finish coat

Another type is called an EIFS with Drainage, which is a barrier EIFS to which a water drainage capability has been added. This type of EIFS is required by many building codes on areas with wood frame construction and is intended to provide a path for incidental water that may get behind the EIFS with a safe route back to the outside. This would be the first layer added on top of your substrate.

Below is an example of EIFS with Drainage. Please refer to the labels on the diagram to get a better understanding of how this system is installed.

**PLEASE NOTE** This is only one example of an EIFS system. There are different options available depending on the substrate of your project.
