Hello Guys and gals who are interested in learning about old lath and plaster sheathing, used primarily in the early 1900’s, now by simply watching and paying a tiny bit of attention you can and will save cash, create a sense of euphoria and sleep well knowing, yeah mon, and no problemo, I did this repair myself.
Old Kirk says, material knowledge is 70% of being a well rounded plasterer, takes a bout 10 to 14 years to be well rounded with extended know how.
The other 30% is application, this take about 10 years on average. I have over 30, so I can do this stuff very effectively as it’s easy with time in.
I have seen perhaps 100 homes with this old lath and plaster, some of these magnificent homes still look as good as the day they were built as it was a really great system.
The majority of issues I have found were some folks let the outsides deteriorate, the stucco can and will last forever, however, the wood trim around windows and doors go first, (neglect) now water gets in expand the studs when wet and starts the acceleration of decline.
Sort of like our health.
