They only way I could be convinced that a wall of that junk would not leak to the interior is if I could personally test the inner wall after a 70+ MPH wind blown rain was tested against the exterior wall. 70 to 90 MPH wind blown rain in a Okla thunderstorm is not uncommon. I have tested many wet walls that were supposed to be water proof. I am not from Missouri but you still have to show me the proof.

Well, EIFS was originally intended to be installed over masonry structures. And yes, although EIFS has improved significantly when installed over wood structures, there still are issues.



I do think, however, that most of the problems today are due to poor design and/or improper installation practices.

Charlie has a point, if it is not installed level, or the wall plane is not true in an direction, there could be water intrusion through the gaps. A better design would have wider sections to limit vertical joints. Also see an issue with the limited width, a resulting consequence being larger gaps where the wall is bowed.

The siding installer will have no control of the underlying framing.

Probably works great in desert climates.
