Exterior Cladding Systems / Continuous Insulation:

For over 45 years Rutherford Company Inc has been installing many different cladding systems. Owners and Architects challenge the imagination with new ideas and RCI brings these visions to reality. With our in-house building information modeling (BIM) team, we help bring all the pieces together including engineering services. We not only install the finished product, but we install the complete sub-framing, sheathing and weather/air-barrier systems. All the cladding systems can be fitted with continuous insulation to meet owner, architect or code requirements. See our extensive list of exterior cladding systems that we specialize in:

  • Three Coat Lath and Plaster
  • Modified Stucco Systems
  • Crack Mitigation Systems  
  • EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System)
  • DEFS (Direct Applied Finish System)
  • Metal Insulated Wall Panels
  • ACM Wall Panels

  • Continuous Insulation Systems
  • Swiss-Pearl
  • Composite Lab Siding

Interior Metal Stud Framing And Drywall Systems:

RCI prides itself on constructing wall and ceiling systems from start to finish; from the design stage through the layout and framing to the finish product. Our building information modeling (BIM) team can help with clash detection and layout issues prior to the accrual building process to help mitigate change orders and delays. Our expertise extends from standard drywall systems to integral colored smooth veneer plasters.

Sprayed-On Fireproofing Systems:

RCI has successfully sprayed over one million board feet of fireproofing on schools, hospitals, and office buildings all over Southern California. Rutherford Company also has extensive experience in Intumescent and Firestopping products.

Earthquake and Moment Frame Repair:    

After the big earthquake of 1994, RCI was called up on to perform emergency repair work. We were helpful in putting prestigious companies including Rockwell/Boeing, Dignity Health, Henry Mayo Hospital and Kaiser back into their buildings to continue their everyday operations. Being the company that can provide the necessary emergency manpower to expediently get the work accomplished was a great benefit to our clients.
