AbstractThis paper presents the results of work performed to enhance understanding of water penetration and moisture characteristics of barrier Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS) clad walls. The investigation was prompted by recent failures of barrier EIFS clad walls on houses in the Wilmington, North Carolina area. The objective ws to determine the cause of the problem and gain a better understanding of water penetration and moisture transport in these systems.
