Direct Applied Systems
In cases where continuous insulation (CI) is not required, Dryvit offers direct applied systems that provide an option for a Dryvit exterior finish system to be applied over exterior cement board with a water-resistive barrier and moisture drainage. This affords the architect the option to choose from traditional or specialty Dryvit finishes like brick, lymestone, granite and even metal panels for the building exterior.

Here are just a few examples of how Outsulation® systems have been used to create high performance, energy code-compliant building exteriors in many building types.
Developer Raj Patel had long wanted to put a hotel near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for the obvious reason: It is the busiest airport in the world." In 2014, Patel's Company, Rossmore Management Group, achieved that goal, opening the doors in September to the 122-room Homewood Suites by Hilton Atlanta Airport North in the city of East Point north of the big airport.
From concept to completion, the construction of the Liberty Center was no easy feat. At 1.2 million square feet, the mixed-use megaplex was designed by architect KA, Inc. to appear as if it were a series of distinct buildings with different façades-similar to how a city block may look over time.
The exterior of the Metro Career Academy was designed to be brick and limestone at a cost of over $960,000. This amount was reduced by over $500,000 by using Outsulation® by Dryvit®. The result is energy code compliant, LEED certified, and looks EXACTLY as originally designed.
Dryvit has been at the center of the exterior cladding renovation business since 1969. Why? Because our ReVyvit by Dryvit renovation program offers a range of renovation solutions: from simply re-coating the existing exterior all the way to a complete over-clad with an Outsulation® system. Whether your building is EIFS or not, we have the perfect renovation solution for you!
A 100-year old brick building painted a distinctive yellow had long been a sort of odd landmark in the Illinois capital city of Springfield. Located just two short blocks from the looming state capital and surrounded by brick buildings in almost every direction, the luxury Isringhausen BMW car dealership was confronted with a unique design challenge when it decided to renovate.
Originally built in 1988 using Dryvit Outsulation, this landmark hotel was starting to show its age. So nearly 20 years after it was first built, a decision was made to restore this property to its original pristine condition. Learn how DryvitCARE made this possible.
Dryvit Outsulation can improve aesthetics, increase property value, meet building code requirements and maximize your building's energy efficiency with an attractive return on investment. Outsulation is ideal for both renovation and new construction and offers a wide range of durable finishes to create almost any look you desire. Whether your property is commercial or residential, Dryvit Outsulation provides benefits for you.
Traditional papers and wraps create obvious paths for moisture to reach- and compromise- the substrate. Our seamless, liquid applied air and water-resistive barriers stop moisture in its tracks, keeping your substrate protected. Whether you are applying it under an Outsulation® system or a non-EIFS wall assembly, we've got your building substrate covered!
The best way to understand how our seamless, liquid-applied air and water-resistive barrier products work is to see how it is applied to the wall. The videos below speak for themselves.
Pre-fabricated panels offer more than just factory-controlled system application; with them you can build in colder climates and your building envelope goes up faster, allowing less disruption on the job site and permitting you to work on the interior fittings faster once the exterior is complete.With our Tech21 pre-fabricated panel program, you get all of the benefits of the traditional Outsulation® system, -lower installed cost, lower annual operating costs, lower environmental costs and limitless design flexibility-all in a factory-controlled environment.

Here are some examples of how the use of Tech-21 panels can help provide a host of advantages over traditional field applied Outsulation® systems.
The 13-story Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph boutique hotel was designed by architect Arquitectonica with modern architectural features including conventional stucco on its 10 topmost floors and a brick veneer accented with metal panels.
The Melrose Apartment building was constructed in the dead of winter in harsh Minnesota weather. Prefabricating the exterior panels for this project was the only way to complete the project within the time allotted.
Panel fabricator, Rob Little, and panel installer, Robert Sutton, speak about the benefits of Panelization in construction today. They touch upon the benefits to not only the fabricator trade, but also the architect and building owner.
The extraordinary design flexibility of the Dryvit Outsulation® system is what distinguishes it from all other exterior cladding choices. You want your building to be brick? Check. Granite? Check. Metal panel? Got that too. And in just about any color under the rainbow. Finally, by easily adding decorative shapes the architect can recreate classic architecture at a cost far more affordable than with traditional building materials. Or even create the next design standard!
The following case studies illustrate how finishes and shapes from Dryvit play an integral role in increasing curb appeal and building value. And with our incredible range of colors available, we can provide an exterior appearance to suit any aesthetic or corporate brand standard.

A 5,000 sq. ft. Dryvit Outsulation® wall assembly accentuated by approximately 900 square feet of panels coated with Reflectit™ – an acrylic coating that looks like aluminum panels – proved to be just the right touch for the façade of a TGI Fridays restaurant recently constructed in Fairview Heights, IL, a suburb of St. Louis.
Design flexibility is critical to architects and specifiers. Dryvit’s many textures and colors offer design freedom at a price the building owner can afford. Listen to these building professionals talk about how Dryvit’s Reflectit coating enabled them to get the look of metal panels with all of the benefits of an Outsulation system.
