Effective November 3, 2003, the building code for residential construction in New Jersey, known as the International Residential Code (“IRC”) has been amended to ban the use of EIFS which does not include house-wrap and a secondary drainage mechanism. This means that thekind of barrier EIFS sold by STO, Dryvit, Senergy, Vitricon, TEC and others, which does not incorporate building paper and secondary drainage would be illegal if installed on a home in New Jersey today.
