FAQs - EIFS Wall Facade Systems

Bauhu Homes use EIFS wall systems which are known for their high levels of insulation, which can help buildings reduce energy consumption and save on heating and cooling costs.

They are also impact resistant, meaning that they can withstand impacts from objects such as hail or falling debris without sustaining damage. This can be beneficial in areas prone to severe weather or where buildings are at risk of impact from falling objects.

In addition to their insulation and impact resistance, EIFS wall systems are also durable and easy to maintain. They can be cleaned and repaired if necessary, and they are resistant to rot, pests, and other types of damage. EIFS wall systems can be used on a variety of building types, including residential, commercial, and institutional buildings. In a typical dwelling, around 30 % of the energy used to heat or cool a room is wasted due to poorly insulated walls. Sto external wall insulation systems dramatically cut energy loss by wrapping the building in a thermally resistant envelope, helping to reduce energy bills and CO2 emissions.
