• ## Dryvit Police

The Dryvit Police, sounds silly but that is exactly what the industry needs. Dryvit has taken an approach that I think most of us would if we had a problem. They looked at the failures and the bottom line and came up with a solution that worked best for the industry. I real don't think to many people could fault them for that. I say forget that and focus on the longevity of the industry and if that is the main focus we need to make sure the EIFS contractors are applying the product correctly. Think about it, if all that you do is protect your self from a law suit and test the product to make sure it is 100% legit there stills lies a huge problem with contractors not applying it correctly. If the goal is to walk away from the problem saying we cannot warranty this application because it was not applied correctly that is only helps the pocket book and only for a short time because while you may have saved some money the industry is getting a bad name every time it happens. It should not matter if there is a warranty involved or not. The EIFS application should be done right every single time and if it is not done correctly that contractor should lose his licence. What we should be focusing on is how to force the contractors to do it right with out losing a bunch of contractors and subsequently sales.
• ## EIFS Contractors

Your EIFS applicator should be certified. It is important that you have a qualified applicator install the product. The Dryvit certification is only good for a limited time as the industry is growing rapidly and the new materials and techniques must be learned as they come out.

• ## Report a Contractor

If you find an EIFS contractor doing poor EIFS work please send us some pictures and the company name and we will forward the findings to Dryvit. Every EIFS contractor need to be applying the product right or we are going to continue to have EIFS jobs that are not lasting the test of time which is hurting the entire industry. We should not let these contractors low ball the price and then come in and do it half assed because they do not have enough money in the job to do it right.

# Dryvit – EIFS

## Dryvit – Exterior Insulation and Finish System

Dryvit is the leading manufacturer of EIFS. Dryvit – EIFS, most people think Dryvit is the name of the industry but actually it is the EIFS industry and EIFS stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish System. Dryvit did a great job promoting their product in the early years and even to this day at least 50% of the people I come across still call the industry Dryvit. So what is EIFS / Dryvit?

According to EIMA the EIFS Industry Members Association it is “Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) are multi-layered exterior wall systems that are used on both commercial buildings and homes. They provide superior energy efficiency and offer much greater design flexibility than other cladding products.”
