Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems
As technology and technological advancements penetrate the building and construction industries we are met with the likes of Exterior insulation and finish systems. Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) administer continuous insulation by design, allowing architects the design flexibility and aesthetics they require, while assisting in meeting the new energy codes. EIFS are continuous insulation and here at National Polystyrene Systems we are the pioneers of installing efficient exterior insulation and finish systems. These systems tend to be a no-load bearing, exterior wall cladding system that consists of an insulation board attached either adhesively or mechanically, or both, to the substrate; an integrally reinforced base coat; and a textured protective finish coat.
Typically, exterior insulation and finish systems assist with providing a water resistive barrier that covers the substrate. The formation of a drainage plane will also be manufactured into the design. Here at National Polystyrene Systems we have masted the art of installing EIPS into our construction projects with accuracy.
Did you know: “EIFS can reduce air infiltration by as much as 60% compared to standard brick or wood construction?”
Durability, moisture control and aesthetics are the key stepping stones our exterior insulation and finish systems administer for your construction project. EIPS are also great for insulation from fires. They have been tested and have passed all major fire testing. The leading and innovative team here at NPS work effortlessly to ensure your project is completed effectively and precisely.
