Residential property owners may find a cost-effective alternative in retrofitting their home with an EIFS stucco application. Retrofitting is a term for adding or fitting a component or accessory to a building at some point after its original construction; EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) stucco is an exterior wall cladding system that offers homeowners several benefits, with the most prominent consisting of:
- Better energy efficiency and reduced costs
- Defence against water or moisture penetration
- Enriched curb appeal/enhanced property values
- Maintaining the charm of the original home/structure
EIFS stucco applications can incorporate a wide range of colours, designs, and textures, and can transform older homes that presently have such exteriors as: Clapboard, Stone or brick, Wood or cedar board, and Siding – vinyl, aluminum, asphalt.
To deliver the optimal finish, performance and benefits of any stucco retrofit, its installation should only be entrusted to highly-skilled professionals, such as the dedicated team from Ruppert Contracting. The Ruppert Contracting crews have the training and knowledge necessary to properly perform EIFS stucco applications that will endure and give homeowners an ongoing return on their investment.
