Dryvit Systems’ Online Presentation Educates Architects on Value of Exterior Insulation

Architects have opportunity to expand EIFS knowledge and earn CE credits


Dryvit Systems, Inc., the leading North American manufacturer of Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS), recently debuted its online architectural presentation “The Value of Exterior Insulation Through the Use of EIFS.” The one-hour program available on AEC Daily’s site at provides an overview of how EIFS are engineered to provide an air barrier, exterior Continuous Insulation (CI) and durable aesthetics. It also discusses how EIFS fit into today’s sustainable design practices, including LEED, as well as current and future code changes related to envelope performance.

This course qualifies for continuing education hours from USGBC, AIA/SD, HSW/SD, GBCI CE, AIBD, CPD, BOMI, FBPE and InterNACHI.

“I'm always interested in learning and getting new information. For me, because I'm already familiar with Dryvit and have used their products in the past, I found this to be an excellent refresher course," commented architect Adolphus Chester. "Dryvit has a great product. Anybody considering using this product or who wants to better understand it should definitely take this course."

Robert W. Dazel, AIA, LEED, GA, and Marketing Manager for Strategic Initiatives for Dryvit developed the presentation and is an authority and expert on exterior wall claddings such as EIFS as well as on building envelope design, detailing, specification and performance.

Dryvit has led the EIFS industry for nearly four decades because of its commitment to research and development.
