EIFs Stucco Siding Issues: Elite Home Exteriors NW, Your Preferred Siding Pros Contractor

Have you ever heard of EIFS or Stucco Siding? You have probably seen this type of exterior siding on homes in Arizona, California and other dry climates. We also have E.I.F.S (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems) siding here in the Vancouver WA, Portland OR and surrounding areas. One of the biggest issues with EIfs Stucco Siding is that it looks great on the outside and can be rotting on your subwall sheathing and structural framing. Water can easily find its way in and cause tens of thousands of dollars of just rot repair and remediation. We often find mold which is very dangerous for the homeowner to be around. Many builders did not use a house wrap or weather barrier system before they installed the EIFs Stucco Siding which is why we find so much rot. As  local siding contractor we are able to inspect where water is most likely going to intrude on your walls. Another issue with homes is that builders often use OSB wood instead of true Plywood as the sheathing. This OSB rots incredible fast and soaks up water.

Many homeowners in the area have their Siding Contractor replace EIFs Stucco Siding with James HardiePlank or Cedar Siding. James HardiePlank is one of the leading siding exterior systems on the market due to its durability, warranty, return on investment and aesthetic look.
