What is EIFS and why are metal panels going to replace the EIFS as part of the bond issue?
Exterior Insulation Finish System (EIFS) is a type of building exterior wall cladding system that provides exterior walls with an insulated finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system. The EFIS system installed at Waverly High School (1998) and Eagle Elementary (2000) needs to have an additional exterior coating added to ensure the viability of the moisture barrier. This is part of the regular maintenance that is recommended to occur every 10-15 years. The Board of Education has determined that a longer term solution, and most cost effective over the next 30 years, would be to use metal panels on the exterior of the building, rather than expend dollars for the shorter term re-coating of the EIFS.
