EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finish Systems), also called synthetic stucco, refers to a multi-layered exterior finish. Unlike traditional stucco, EIFS is a thin surface finish applied over a foam insulation board which is typically attached to sheathing (OSB or Plywood). Failures occur when moisture gets trapped between the foam backing of the EIFS system and the wood sheathing it is attached to.
The moisture attacks the wood sheathing, framing, and studs which leads to dry rot and toxic mold problems. If untreated, the dry rot and mold damage can often cost as much as the new siding to replace it. The rotting wood ultimately leads to the destruction of the homes structure.
