Exterior Insulating and Finishing Systems

For 30 years, the stucco-like appearance of Exterior Insulating and Finish Systems (EIFS) has given commercial buildings high curb appeal, broad design and color flexibility; low maintenance and durability; and increased energy efficiency. In more recent years, the residential marketplace has begun enjoying the benefits of EIFS, as well. However, in some residential applications, there had been a problem. 

Moisture that had passed through windows and door openings was trapped behind the EIFS exterior; in some cases the moisture caused rotting of wall studs and sheathing. The problem was summarized in the New York Times article, “Some Users of Artificial Stucco Find Headaches Are Real.” The article states, “The trouble is that EIFS are too waterproof. Water that gets trapped behind [the EIFS exterior] has nowhere to go and begins soaking into studs or plywood sheathing.” 

For this reason many EIFS manufacturers have innovated moisture-mitigation systems that effectively prevent moisture

Appointed to head exterior design at the company since the start of the year, Lesnik effectively replaces Hans-Dieter Futschik in overseeing all exterior design for the Stuttgart-based manufacturer’s passenger cars. He’s had a lot of practice already.

In his previous role as exterior design chief – a position now filled by former Audi designer Achim Badstübner – Lesnik devised the successful shapes of concept cars like the Concept CLS Shooting-Brake, Concept-GLA, Concept Style Coupe/CLA, and fabulous Concept S-Class Coupe.

He’s now overseeing a team of 65 people – including design engineers – and tasked with developing the next phase of the ‘sensual purity’ design ethos he helped create since joining the company in 2009.

What Is Exterior Cladding? | Hunker

Exterior cladding may not be something that you give a lot of thought, but it is what keeps a building safe when weather happens. It is the exterior wall covering that protects all the interior components of a house. The cladding is a critical choice in how a building holds up for the long term and how much upkeep will be needed to maintain it. Today’s cladding choices are more varied than ever, offering better technical protection but also more aesthetic options.
