Hi Mehudson:

This really is a question for a builder/contractor. I have linked to the appropriate web page on Colorado Green Building Guild website. The guild is located here in Boulder, so many members are here. You can search for a contractor using the fields on this page. You also can use a link at the top of the page to ask a question, but you will have to register for a free "web only" account first.

Kind regards,

I assisted a client with an EIFS home a few years ago. If you are purchasing, be certain to have a moisture inspection. If you are installing, be aware that the system keep woodpeckers in mind - they love to poke their heads into EIFS (so be ready to mitigate). On a more serious note, EIFS can be damaged by water. Make certain gutters and downspouts will not be splashing on the structure -- this commonly happens with houses, so take extra care. Additionally EIFS should not be in contact with doors, windows, concrete, roofing material or the ground. I'm available to discuss this in greater detail; have photographs of work completed before/after and can search my files for the inspectors we utilized on the transaction.
