Rising popularity of EIFS in commercial properties highlighted in new report

Calgary Parging has released a new report detailing the latest trends in the stucco and parging industry. The report highlights the growing popularity of Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) in commercial properties, praised for its insulation benefits. In contrast, cement stucco with an acrylic finish continues to dominate the residential market, with 87% of homes opting for this choice.


The report also addresses the issue of woodpecker damage, leading to innovations such as woodpecker-proofed stucco. Repair costs for residential properties range from $300 to $4,000, with specific costs for woodpecker damage starting at $600.
