Seneca Way Exterior Insulation Going Up

September 5, 2013 // by Jason Henderson

Lifts with crews are making their way up the exterior facade to install insulation before the facade is applied, much like Breckenridge, although the facade material will be much lighter on Seneca Way than the brick facade on Breckenridge (brick has also become quite expensive these days). The insulation material is a form of EIFS, which stands for Exterior Insulation Finishing System, which is generally paired with a mesh, a base coat, then a finish coat of an acrylic or latex-based textured finish.
