stucco over stud walls, plaster over stud walls
Howdy guys and gals, in this video I applied the BMI stucco base coat (scratch and brown coat) on an area that was lathed but did not have a sheer backing. (This is the most difficult of base coat application to apply both coats on the same day) as you lose a lot of stucco in the field. (Between studs)
The plaster which is traditionally 7/8 thick tends to be about inch and one half, (between studs) I did this primarily just to see how well it would hang under the most extreme sheer conditions.
A week later I returned to witness absolutely no hairline cracks, (at all) this is rare to me with same day stucco base coat even over a sheer wall backing let alone no sheer wall. I have to say I am impressed with BMI products.
