EIFS industry veteran Buck Buchanan speaks about the system from the 1990s until the present. The industry experienced a hard period in the late 1990s through the Wilmington, N.C., water intrusion crisis. But through the efforts of EIMA and its extended membership family, the industry pulled together and continued to offer quality products as serviced through a qualified workforce.

Buchanan also speaks to the insurance crisis as a result of these problems and how many insurance providers worked with the industry to underwrite those contractors that supplied EIFS.

From coast to coast, Buchanan has circled the world in the name of EIFS. These stories and more can be found in his book “Behind the Wall.”
