Stucco Siding For Your Calgary Home
Stucco is a timeless, classic look that has been used for centuries. S.I.S. uses Adex brand polymer-based exterior coatings for those customers that choose the traditional look of stucco in Calgary. This system is known as EIFS or Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems. The benefits of this product are many including its superior durability and energy efficiency as well as its minimal requirement for maintenance under normal conditions. It is available in 300 standard colors and it is also possible to replicate the color of your choice through a custom order.
What makes the EIFS system energy efficient?
The new synthetic stucco systems are very energy efficient, because they include an additional insulation layer of expanded polystyrene, (which you may know as Styrofoam), which provides an increased thermal barrier. As per the Adex.ca website, “Expanded polystyrene (EPS) works not only as the backing for the EIFS lamina (base coat, mesh and finish coat), it also provides an R-4 insulation value for every inch of thickness used. For instance, a four inch thickness of EPS will raise the insulation value of your walls to R-16! No other cladding system combines this level of performance and aesthetics.”
In a nutshell the EIFS system is a non-load bearing, composite cladding system that consists of a weather resistant barrier (air and/or vapor barrier); and insulation board attached either by adhesively, mechanically, or both, to the substrate; an integrally reinforced base coat; and a textured protective finish coat.
Colors, Shapes and Textures – The Fun Stuff!
The expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) board used in the EIFS system can be molded and shaped into an endless variety of designs. This can dramatically increase the aesthetic value of your home in addition to reducing heating costs. Adex also offers 300 standard colors as well as unlimited custom colors of your choice. In addition, you have a choice of texture for the finish coat on your home. Depending on the look that you desire, the finish or top coat can range from a very fine, smooth texture to a more course, rugged texture. The combinations are endless!
