Updates to the 2013 California Building Energy Efficiency Standards, known as Title 24, went into effect July 1, 2014.

In order to comply many new homes will be built with continuous insulation, which uses foam board sheets on the outside of the framing covered with a plaster system specifically designed for the application.
Fibrewall, fiber reinforced stucco system, can be used in insulated stucco assemblies to provide continuous insulation and help builders meet the stringent Title 24 requirements.
