Exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is a general class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface in an integrated composite material system. In Europe, systems similar to EIFS are known as External Wall Insulation System (EWIS) and External Thermal Insulation Cladding System (ETICS).
EIFS has been in use since the 1960s in North America, first on masonry buildings, but since the 1990s the majority on wood framed buildings. There is a history of water infiltration problems causing damage to buildings resulting in costly legal cases, so the recommended systems include a drainage plane to let water drain down and out from behind the cladding.
The term “cultured stone” or “manufactured stone” refers to “stone” that is made in a factory. Typically, it is molded into many different shapes using concrete. The concrete shapes are then stained with various hues to achieve the most natural look possible. “Cultured Stone” is actually a brand name of one popular manufactured stone made by Owens Corning.
“Stone veneer” or “thin-cut stone,” on the other hand, is stone that has been mined from the earth, then cut into uniform shapes and thicknesses for use on fireplaces and walls. The stone is sorted based on color, so homeowners can order the specific color blend that will work best in their home. Stones can range from slate or granite to limestone or marble, giving you a variety of colors and styles to choose from.
