Synthetic Stucco or exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is a type of exterior siding system which is designed to insulate and finish a home at the same time. This system was developed following the Second World War, when European manufacturers were seeking a way of rapidly repairing damaged buildings and getting new homes completed in communities which had experienced substantial damages from the war.

Synthetic stucco is prized for its superior insulating properties, cost-effectiveness, and its ability to be designed into a variety of architectural styles. Synthetic Stucco ( EIFS) was primarily used on commercial buildings in the United States until the early 1980’s, when it was introduced into the residential building market because of its design flexibility, energy efficiency, and relatively low cost.

Although synthetic stucco may be similar in appearance to traditional stucco, the finish can also resemble wood, brick, stone, and a variety of other materials. The materials in this product are also synthetic, rather than being natural in origin like traditional stucco, and synthetic stucco has a very different look and feel when it is installed and maintained properly. Synthetic stucco comes in polymer based (PB) and polymer modified (PM) varieties, with PB EIFS being especially sturdy.
