There has been more and more issues with the moisture intrusion when it comes to EIFS clad homes. The reason for this is that the old barrier Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems are getting aged now and are having issues due to a lack of being properly maintained. These old barrier system have to be maintained or moisture will get in behind and be trapped. The barrier system was designed to keep water out. Failing caulk, windows, doors, flashing can cause major moisture infiltration. This major problem with EIFS has been addressed with the Next Generation of EIFS which has a moisture drainage system. The moisture issue with Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) stucco has been solved.
