Hello to all our subscribers or folks who wander into our channel by choice or reasons unknown.
Perhaps your computer knows you have a stucco home?😉
This How-to plastering video explains Stucco tips on lath, scratch brown-coat sand finishing’ expansion joints. Same day stuccos and when you should do some caulking to avoid what happened here. It’s a busy video, as I thought I’d explain much stuff that some may find educational.🤔
Next to the original and existing wall, the original crack next to the roofline went down vertically. After the addition was added, that crack was left untreated or not caulked.
The most important part of this video is to explain If your addition, like in this video where the roof meets, is cracked, you should keep it filled with caulking.
Had the original small and harmless crack been caulked much sooner, rainwater would not have been allowed to enter and rot out some of the plywood sub-straight.
Then these wonderful folks would not have had to remove the stucco to chase the areas of dry rot plus replace much of the wood siding, suds, let alone put it all back together again.

In this video, we were applying BMI’s 690 reinforced fiberrered stucco.
This is the same-day really strong stucco.
What happens when one applies any cement plaster over an inch thick?
Some multiple coats cement plasters to hairline crack. However, this 690 BMI did not have lots of lime plus added fiberglass included in the bags.
FYI, excellent information about plaster in this link. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
In English, “stucco” sometimes refers to a coating for the outside of a building and “plaster” to a coating for interiors; as described below, Other European languages, notably including Italian, do not have the same distinction; stucco means plaster in Italian and serves for both.
