Model Quality Plan for Use of Drainage EIFS

This document outlines key quality control points for builders and installation contractors using Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) cladding for residential construction.

The purpose of the document is to establish a Quality Plan for the construction process that results in long-term performance of EIFS-clad dwellings. The construction process involves selecting an EIF system that can perform as intended, verifying that the building incorporates a properly installed substrate, weather barrier, flashing, and sealant and is suitable for EIFS installation. The EIFS installation process includes installation of the insulating board, reinforced base coat, and finish coat.

The aim is to prevent construction defects, ensure compliance with manufacturer’s requirements, and reduce variation.
