How Is Cement Stucco Installed?
Installing cement stucco is not an easy feat and it should only be done by trained professionals. The first step in installing cement stucco is to nail building paper over the wall you want to install stucco to. Only galvanized nails should be used which will not rust with time. Install the papers making sure that they overlap at least 6 inches at the vertical seams.
The next step is to install galvanized lath or netting over the building paper. Mixed stucco mixture with water. This stucco mixture should be mixed with a certain proportion, wrong of proportion will give poor installation. Over the length three coats of cement stucco is applied. The first coat is called the scratch coat and is directly applied over the lath material which is 3/8 inches thick and is raked with a tool with the ⅛ deep grooves.
The next layer is called brown coat which is applied with ¾ inches thickness. The last coat or exterior coat is of ⅛ inches thick and is often colored to your desired color.
