Got the wall snapped for stucco removal as well. Need to install a none structural ledgerboard with flashing for my RainEscapes.

Re: M. O. A. D.


Whadya you guys think. Do I demo the stucco just to accommodate the flashing and apply the none structural ledger on top the stucco? It will all by buried and all I really need is to get the flashing under the stucco and paper. I don't see an advantage of attaching the ledger to the framing. It's basically just backing for my ceiling.

What would work best for seismic, tie it in or leave it decoupled?

Re: M. O. A. D.


Was going to have my guys dig with a rented backhoe and dump trailer. But my saw cutting company will do it all for 1800 bucks. Including haul away. Sold!

Re: M. O. A. D.


I would think about taking all the ledger stucco out, because the ledger to wood attachment is good. The ledger to stucco could stress the stucco and cause a fault in it causing a bigger headache. It will also give the guys plenty of room to work that dam flashing up under there. You know that will have screws and crap to block it's easy going in.
