Tom is a brilliant and fair foundation specialist contractor and loving husband with two beautiful daughters. Fortunately, his two beautiful daughters have their mother’s looks.😉
FYI, we try to explain what we’re doing in easy-to-understand terminology so that even our dear old granddaddy can understand what we’re explaining. So, if ole pops can, surely you can too.
This is a walk-through of how to prepare any home before stucco applications.
Number one is applying the waterproofing barrier, known as “lathing,” in the plastering industry.
The first thing any contractor or DIY er will do is attach the stucco weep screed.
One must be prepared for anything that is not anticipated; such as in this video, there are a few scenarios that take improvising. The idea is to combine code with common sense or codes with cosmetics or appearances.
Next, we take two layers of grade D 60-minute paper and hand staple them to all the exterior walls. This again requires some improvising, in case of window doors, etc., are not yet installed as I’m describing in this video.
Next, you would staple on seventeen or eighteen gauges galvanized stucco netting.
Note, 20 gage is for chicken coops or tile work, so don’t use that thin and easy to handle netting, although it may seem tempting.
Within this video, the deception as the weeks go by, we will add all the various methods I have described in this introduction video.
Such as a full length of how we did the porch and how to set the waterproofing and stucco while the electrical contractor pulls the box and takes lunch; this will give us the necessary time to add the lath and stucco, then he can reattach and be on his way without making two trips.
We’ll also show you how to hang corners and arches, as many don’t understand this concept.
We’ll show how to stick the window membranes plus the flat surface waterproofing and more as we get to that stage.
As I said in the video, anything, you DIYer or journeyman wants to see completed, just ask in the comments.
In this video below, I pointed to a home we did for my pal Larry Beilman of Beilman construction; see a worst-case scenario tilted.
