Why inspect EIFS?
All the major manufacturers Dryvit, Senergy, and STO recommend regular inspections and maintenance on there EIFS Systems.
Usually, there are very few visible “signs,” especially to the untrained eye. This is why inspection and testing are so important.
EIFS systems should be inspected every couple of years to insure no major problems are developing behind the EIFS system.
Most problems I find are a result of improper EIFS installation and/or the lack of maintenance. All exteriors need to be maintained properly.
