Dryvit

Dryvit

A brand name for a particular exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) that resembles stucco.There has been extensive class-action litigation as a result of claimed deficiencies in the system as a whole,not just the Dryvit brand.Unfortunately,Dryvit has come to be synonymous with the entire industry,much the same as Xerox for copiers and Kleenex for facial tissues.
