EIFS Revealed

Waterproof Air Barrier System Integration with Other Systems 

The building’s air barrier system must be continuous around the whole building envelope and must be durable. That means that where the EIFS waterproof air barrier terminates, it must be connected to the adjacent material in a durable manner. Coordination with other trades, careful installation sequence planning and assurance of material compatibility is required.  This should never be left undetermined in the construction process. The time and effort required to get it right is nothing compared to the cost of getting it wrong!
