Howdy folks in this video, we share some tips on Exterior wall waterproofing for newly built room additions or remodels constructed by homeowners most of the tips are common issues most folks have when waterproofing walls prior to the application of stucco.
Like can a weep or drip screed be placed on concrete without a metal flashing protecting the mud sill, it can be accomplished by the techniques shown in this video, however metal first before a pour is a good idea, flashing is rarely installed as it’s too difficult to know where to place the flashing plus making the pour of concrete twice as difficult, especially when a fella has a stamped concrete look as flashing would impend the forms needed to stamp the concrete.
Other common tips like using jumbo tex 60 minute paper over the plywood sheathing are also common plus bringing electrical boxes out to about 1 inch, technical it’s 7/8 as this is the common thickness of stucco and the weep or drip screeds.
Lastly, it’s always a good idea to install louver stucco vents as this stops the average rain from entering and dripping on the wood or mud sill.
If rain continues to go through your stucco vents it can wet and expand the wood, thus expanding the stucco creating some hairline cracks which could also lead to buckling if left long enough, BTW, if you do have stucco vents with just a mesh screen you can purchase a louver covers and screw directly over the existing mesh wire stucco vents, of course, you would have to caulk around the perimeter.
For other common water proofing tips about stucco walls leave a comment.
