Research shows test reveals the hard truth about exterior claddings.
Because the work to install stucco had to be coordinated with other trades and scheduled around tenants residing in the building, the contractor needed a stucco product that would let crews scratch, brown, color, and clean up multiple five-by-nine-foot walls in one workday. Eisenwall was the only product that would allow the crew to complete a wall in one day.

The process typically takes three weeks with traditional stucco and would have required scaffolding to be in place for the entire time. Using Eisenwall also allowed for the scaffolding to be removed more quickly.
