Re: Stucco Lathe Problem?


I was thinking of something witty to say about the stucco being rough on my rear end but came up with nothing lol.

He shouldn't have a problem with it if he knows how to run his trowel.

Usually on a gable end to save time, I will just tip the lath to run right up the soffit.

It is less important to get it going in the right direction than it is to make absolutely sure there are no bumps in it, or spans without enough fasteners.

Thin veneer stone manufacturers say to only nail into the framing. I usually do this but didn't on a current job and a building inspector called me on it. I had to do some fast talking to keep from tearing off 1200 square foot of lath and a few hundred of stone. It is hard not to have bumps when going over a 3/4 inch thick rainscreen drainage mat and only nailing into framing.

Re: Stucco Lathe Problem?


The inspector initially called the builder, who called me in a panic. I have never had an inspector show any interest in exterior veneer work before but this office had seen some recent failures and were trying to get up to speed by reading the installation instructions online. I told them that nailing only into framing is a good idea but sometimes impractical and that the many failures I had seen were from lack of weather resistant barriers or kickout flashings or both, or generally poor workmanship. I also mentioned, as an example of ideal world versus real world, that every manufacturer calls for starting the stone 4 inches up from grade but most installers don't do that because it is unacceptable to the customers. I know that inspection of wall prep is happening in some areas with requirements to include drainage planes and weep systems, but I hadn't encountered it in my area before. No problem as long as I know what to expect and that everyone else has to follow the same rules.
