An external insulating finishing system works by creating a barrier between the internal structure of a building and the external environment. This barrier is designed to protect the building from moisture, heat, cold, and other environmental conditions while also providing insulation to keep the interior comfortable and energy efficient. The system typically consists of several layers, including an air-tight sealant, thermal barrier, weatherproofing material, and a topcoat that can be colored to match the exterior of the building. The sealant helps keep air and moisture from entering the structure, while the thermal barrier prevents heat transfer between the interior and exterior of a building. Weatherproofing materials are also applied to prevent water from entering the building, while the topcoat provides a protective layer that helps to maintain the look and feel of the exterior over time. By ensuring proper installation and maintenance of these products, homeowners can enjoy long-term protection from damaging weather conditions while also creating an energy-efficient home.
