Ryan Barnes, E.I., will be speaking this year in Dallas, TX, at RCI’s 27th International Convention and Tradeshow on Saturday, March 17th from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and again from 10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. The topic is on the Evolution of EIFS: “Since their U.S. introduction over 40 years ago, exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) claddings have evolved, with code and industry standard modifications, to effectively manage moisture. As costs declined, EIFS installation became viable in the residential market. Increased construction errors fueled application and design changes that require compliant use of code-recognized systems. Barrier EIF systems do not incorporate moisture-management components and depend on the exterior surface (including all sealant joints) to be completely weatherproof.”
