Barrier or Drainage EIFS


Recommended Posts

Drainage EIFS has a drainage plane, through wall flashing at penetrations and a weep screed at the bottom.

Barrier EIFS (over wood substrate) has mushrooms growing behind it.

If this is the strip plaza from the aluminum window thread it's probably barrier EIFS over CMUs. It will most likely be just as wrong as the window install, but robust enough to handle the little bit of moisture it'll see (wide overhangs, short kneewalls, high frequency air changes-both controlled and from opening and closing doors).
