EIFS Revealed


EIFS standard finish is available in millions of shades and hues. Why boring beige is the predominant colour remains a mystery to the industry. There are limitations on very dark colours because they will get too hot for the insulation, therefore, avoid black. Aside from that colours and combinations of colours can create dynamic appearances far beyond what is available in any other cladding. And that’s just the beginning!

Manufacturers have developed finishes that look like everything from metal to granite to brick. There are finishes that repel dirt and water and finishes that have IR reflecting pigments to keep dark colours cooler. The choice and potential for design is breathtaking.
