Along with our conventional stucco installation services, Platinum Remodeling & Stucco offers professional installation, repair, removal, and replacement of EIFS, or synthetic stucco. We can also strengthen existing EIFS with a 3-coat application to replicate hardcoat stucco. This adds an additional layer of protection against the elements and other issues, such as pesky woodpecker holes.
What is EIFS?
EIFS stands for “External Insulating Finish Systems,” a synthetic stucco process consisting of an insulation board attached to the substrate, a reinforced base coat and a textured top coat resembling true stucco. First popularized in Europe as a way to repair buildings damaged in WWII, EIFS is often used today in many homes and businesses as a lighter, more insulated alternative to true stucco. However, the disadvantages of EIFS are that it is difficult to maintain, easily stained and easily damaged if moisture seeps in through cracks due to improper installation. Also, EIFS is prone to pest damage, like woodpecker holes.
