Waterproofing stucco lath, repairing leaking stairwell with peel and stick membranes.
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 Name 510 547-3621) to remove the plaster and repair the wood rotted areas. He set the scaffold, removed the stucco, fixed all the damaged wood, flashed the decks properly, and installed new windows.
My job was to re-lath the walls for waterproofing and apply two coats of plaster with a texture to match the existing finish, a dash finish. When we were complete, the plaster was 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)
How to lath, scratch, and brown and texture a stairwell on an apartment building.
Next, kick back, relax, and enjoy the video!
