About the Topic: EIFS – Much More Than Just a Pretty Face

EIFS is an integral part of the building envelope that separates the indoor environment from the outdoor environment. The presentation relates EIFS to the applicable building code requirements regarding protection from precipitation, fire protection, air leakage control, condensation control, and thermal resistance. It furthermore relates those properties to sustainable, resilient, passive design.

The presentation also includes highlights of an independent life cycle costing and thermal performance study that compares EIFS to alternative cladding systems.

Attendees will acquire an understanding of EIFS as a viable option to other cladding systems and they will learn the value of placing the primary resistance to heat transfer and air leakage outboard of the structure.



Please Note: All WALK-UPS (non pre-registered attendees) must pay a blanket price of $65.00, including Students and Members.
