Good Practice Guide: Texture-coated claddings (3rd edition)
Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) and flush-finished texture-coated fibre-cement claddings have figured prominently in leaky building statistics. Failures were attributed to poor detailing and workmanship that come from an incomplete understanding of the limitations of these systems and knowledge of what constitutes good practice.
Designers, contractors and regulators can refer to this publication for the information they need for good design and correct detailing and recommended on-site construction practices.
This guide covers:
- systems in general terms and the performance, design and specification requirements for texture-coated claddings
- masonry veneer
- concrete and concrete masonry
- lightweight concrete/autoclaved aerated cement.
