Advantages of EIFS

In many markets sustainable building, and in particular energy efficiency in buildings, has become a key benchmark of successful building designs. Today Architects are quick to see the benefits that these sustainable EIFS building systems give. They not only allow designers a very large degree of design flexibility, but also typically generate an excellent Return on Investment (ROI) and provide a compelling cost-to-benefit rationale.

EIFS is ideal as it can be applied to both new and existing buildings. In fact, many older buildings are rejuvenated and given a facelift using Terraco EIFS, because these systems are applied to the exterior of a building, not the interior. Importantly internal living space is not sacrificed – and critically there is no need for occupants to vacate the building while installing the Terraco EIFS, which makes EIFS perfect for renovation work.

One of the largest benefits of EIFS is that it can be used for renovation projects, and with the rising cost of energy in many countries across Europe and Russia, older buildings are now being made energy efficient structures using Terraco EIFS. The same principal can be applied in the Middle East and Australasia to existing buildings, be they hospitals, hotels, commercial centres, shopping malls, warehouses, schools, universities, even a private residence.

The Terraco Group has been pioneering the development and production of Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems since the 1980’s. Terraco has numerous international EIFS quality certifications and approvals – EOTA (European), BBA (British Agrément), the US FED Specification Certification, as well as certification from Ireland, Russia, Turkey, China, Korea and the UAE.

The versatility and durability of Terraco EIFS makes it ideal for new build as well as renovations projects.
