Oregon’s Ban of Barrier EIFS

This isn’t new (it’s from 2007), but it is the first I have heard of it. The state of Oregon has banned the use of (barrier) Exterior Insulation Finish Systems as a building cladding.

What I love is the fact that they SPECIFICALLY banned barrier EIFS, not dual-barrier/drainage. They even explain it a little bit in the notice, that it’s not all EIFS – just EIFS without drainage and a weather barrier. It’s refreshing to see something educated for a change, as opposed to just “EIFS is bad don’t use it”.

I have a new fondness for Oregon.

  • What is Stucco?

    "Stucco" is typically what people in the Toronto area use when they're looking for EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finish Systems, or "synthetic stucco"). We use the two terms interchangeably.
