EIMA Continues Push for Increased EIFS Insurance Coverage

September 2016

The EIFS Industry Members Association announces several new additions to the continual push for increased EIFS insurance coverage.
“Through meetings and education, EIMA will continue to market the superior performance capabilities of an exterior insulation and finish system to the insurance industry.” said Dave Johnston, executive director for EIMA. “There are countless studies and reports that prove outdated concerns with EIFS can be left in the past; removing any and all exclusions are a must.”
Over the last year, EIMA representatives have attended the International Risk Management Institute’s Annual Conference, met with nationally recognized insurance companies to discuss coverage for EIFS projects, held an EIFS Insurance Symposium and expanded the database of access points on the EIMA website. The EIMA website now includes better navigation tools for locating insurance access points, and a new list of options for those seeking out coverage. Both the EIFS Insurance and EIMA Initiatives page include pathways to addressing these issues.
