EIFS Replacement | Cedar/Stone

Project Details

This was an exterior renovation on a large home that was sided originally with EIFS cladding (Exterior Insulation & Finish System). EIFS is essentially 1 to 1 ½ inches of Styrofoam attached directly to the plywood sheathing with a finish stucco coat applied over the Styrofoam. Styrofoam attached to a wood substrate is a very poor choice in our climate as the Styrofoam traps (and absorbs) excess moisture creating a perfect environment for dry rot and mold to occur.

This project included transforming the home from the EIFS stucco look to more of a NW contemporary look which is very common. We accomplished this by adding cedar lap siding, a cedar window & door trim package as well as Cultured Stone accents. We also built a composite deck and railing system off the rear elevation wall.
