Robert Thomas is a nationally recognized EIFS consultant, based in Jacksonville, Fla.
He was the manager of technical services for a major EIFS producer, is the
author of several books about EIFS and chairs the ASTM committee on EIFS.
EIFS is like any other building material in the sense that it is well-suited for some uses and not for others. This column is a compilation of my thoughts about where EIFS works well and where it does not, including some unusual specialty uses.
Everyone’s heard of Stonehenge in England-the
weird stone blocks in the middle of a field. But who has heard of Foamhenge in Virginia? It is a full
size replica of the real Stonehenge made of
EIFS. Who could dream up a cooler name?
