Dryvit Marks 10th Anniversary of EIFS System in 2007
At the Feb. 7-10 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Dryvit Systems, Inc. (Booth S12531), the leading manufacturer of Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) will be showcasing its Residential MD System. The exterior cladding system with moisture drainage is engineered specifically for residential applications, providing an extra level of moisture protection to Dryvit’s premier EIFS technology.
This year’s IBS marks the 10th anniversary of the release of the highly successful Residential MD system. In 1997, Dryvit was the first EIFS manufacturer to engineer a drainage-cavity EIF system specifically for residential construction.
“We have experienced significant growth in our residential business due to the success of our drainage system,” said Tony Stall, vice president of marketing for Dryvit. “The Residential MD system has been proven in the marketplace for a decade now, with more than 11,000 homes in place, providing superior energy efficiency to owners year after year.”
The system allows for drainage between the secondary weather barrier and insulation board. It can be either adhesively attached or mechanically fastened with Dryvit-approved fasteners over a code-approved weather barrier to the substrate, providing maximum strength and wind-load performance. After reinforced base coat and fiberglass mesh, the final touch is the application of a Dryvit acrylic finish, which can resemble brick, granite, stucco, limestone and more.
The system is backed by a 10-year moisture drainage and materials warranty. However, homes are eligible for a 30-year warranty when builders use EIFSmart-certified applicators to install the Dryvit products and participate in a Dryvit pre-construction seminar.
