Stucco / EIFS / Cement Plaster –

We are a recognized industry leader in the design and construction of stucco and EIFS building cladding systems. We are active participants in industry education initiatives including; AIA Continuing Education instruction, presented technical papers and providing expert speaker presentations at industry sponsored events.

We place a special emphasis on design and integration of waterproofing and drainage elements located behind stucco and EIFS cladding. We have learned that thoughtful integration of the backing waterproofing, drainage and sheet metal components into the system can mean the difference between cladding systems failing after only a few years or performing for decades.

Siding –

We are experts in all major siding systems including; wood plank, wood shingle, concrete composite plank, engineered wood products, vinyl and metal siding systems.

Allana Buick & Bers places special emphasis on design and integration of waterproofing and drainage elements located behind siding products as well as sheet metal selection, detailing and integration into siding systems. We have learned that thoughtful integration of the backing waterproofing, drainage system and sheet metal components into the system can mean the difference between success and failure.

Metal Wall Systems –

We are experts in all major siding systems including but not limited to: metal shingles, metal panel and corrugated metal panels. Allana Buick & Bers is also well versed in exotic wall panel systems such as plastic metal composite panels and specialty metals (zinc, copper, stainless steel, Core-Ten and titanium).

We place special emphasis on design and integration of waterproofing and drainage elements located behind metal panel wall systems as well as sheet metal flashing selection, detailing and integration of window and door systems. We have learned that thoughtful integration of the backing waterproofing, drainage system and sheet metal flashing components into the system can make the difference between a failed and leaky wall system and one that has leak free performance for many decades.
