Common Issues with EIFS or Synthetic Stucco

CDP STUCCO frequently receives referrals from stucco inspectors, real estate agents, home inspectors, and insurance adjusters to repair improper EIFS installations. While we do offer EIFS repairs, some clients prefer to transition their EIFS exterior to hard coat stucco. Hard coat stucco is simply another name for traditional stucco.

We work with both residential and commercial clients to remove the EIFS system and install a new complete traditional stucco system. We understand how to tackle each EIFS project to ensure the complete remedy of moisture damage before installing the new stucco system.

EIFS is a synthetic stucco that often experiences problems due to improper installation and moisture damage. While EIFS works well for certain projects, only highly trained and experienced technicians should attempt to install EIFS.

Common EIFS Problems

  • Improper installation
  • Moisture damage
  • Delamination
  • Cracks
  • Fire damage
  • Impact damage or other holes
  • Complete system failure

Why to Replace EIFS with Traditional Stucco

Traditional stucco is a better exterior solution than EIFS. Unlike synthetic stucco, a correctly installed hard coat stucco system experiences far less issues. Also, hard coat stucco creates a strong yet breathable barrier. This allows moisture to escape through the porous exterior.

Because EIFS traps moisture, there’s a higher risk of mold and other damage when water penetrates the system. Traditional stucco allows moisture to flow out of the system which prevents the unwanted water damage unless something happens to compromise the system, like holes or major cracks.

At CDP STUCCO, we almost always recommend traditional stucco instead of synthetic stucco. In our experience, property owners find more long-term satisfaction with fewer maintenance issues with hard coat stucco.

The Benefits of Traditional or Hard Coat Stucco

Traditional stucco provides both beauty and durability for residential and commercial properties. In fact, many Northwest Florida property owners select stucco because it holds up well to the Northwest Florida weather.

In addition, hard coat stucco offers versatile design options. Whether you need an updated look to your store front or want a luxurious feel for your custom home, stucco comes in a variety of colors and textures to meet your needs.

  • Durable surface
  • Porous and breathable to prevent water damage
  • Variety of colors and textures available
  • Add curb appeal
  • Improve property value
  • Energy efficient
  • Lower cost than fiber cement siding
  • Fewer maintenance and installation issues than EIFS
