Overall, EIFS contractors enjoy greater fairness, control, confidence and profitability under EQI. EIFS contractors are only bidding against properly qualified competitors who must adhere to CAN/ULC-S716.2 Standard for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems – Installation of EIFS Components and Water Resistive Barrier. The EQI requirements for the certification and licensing of mechanics help to maintain a level playing field among contractors. EQI requirements for explicitly addressing all transition details means that EIFS contractors will not be liable for defects and performance problems created “by others” because this language is not permitted in the EIFS specifications. By fully delineating the scope of the building enclosure work assigned to the EIFS contractor, bidding is more clear and consistent. Requirements for documentation and site audits help keep in line everybody working for the contractor.
As well, EQI promotes accredited contractors to design professionals across Canada. We encourage the professional design community to adopt the EQI Quality Assurance Program and specify only EQI-accredited contractors in all registered projects.
