Waterproof lathing apply stucco to a stairwell in an apartment building
Hi guys this video explains the proper way to waterproof walls. This apartment building had been leaking for many years,
The homeowner hired a contractor (Mark Mc Namee 510 547-3621) to remove all of the plaster and repair the wood rotted areas, He set the scaffold removed the stucco, repaired all the damaged wood, flashed the decks properly, and installed new windows.
My job was to re-lath the walls for waterproofing, apply two coats of plaster with a texture to match the existing finish which is a dash finish. When we were complete the plaster set for 28 days while the plaster cured then Mark applied a primer and painted the walls.
I am shown here explaining industry code standards.
The key in lathing is to overlap properly so the wall won’t leak. And to lath over the existing lath to prevent a crack from developing. (Wire over the wire)
lath, scratch, and brown, to repair a stairwell.
