Your EIFS Applicator should be trained and have a Dryvit Certification
Keeping up to date on the EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) industry and it’s ever changing technologies is key to being a good applicator. Building codes are changing from year to year with the ‘Green Moment’ at the fore front of American Building. New standards and technologies are being introduced to the Synthetic Stucco industry like never before. Test data from the Department of Energy indicates Exterior Insulation and Finish System will be a formidable product for years to come to help America reduce its energy consumption from the building sector, which at present uses about 10% of the worlds energy produced.Corey Turcotte, eifsrepair.info, A display of current Certifications by Industry leading manufactures and Universities including BASF, Dryvit, Senergy, Master Wall, Parex, Build Design plus Construction University, and Hanley Wood University
