Exterior continuous insulation (CI), as well as an air barrier, are
the most effective ways to meet both Federal and California

Systems (EIFS) are a proven methodology that integrates these
elements into a durable, design-flexible, cost-effective, single
source solution that fully meets and exceeds the new codes.
Did you know…
- Thermal bridging at the stud line and its inherent
energy loss is the single largest challenge with
traditional framed buildings.
-According to the Department of Energy, the
solution is CI. In fact, CI is now required in most new
-When CI is incorporated into the building wall,
thermal bridging is eliminated, controlling energy
flow, conserving energy and reducing operating
