Metal wire strand
Galvanized roofing nails
Tom J. lives in Wrightwood, California where the weather can be quite severe. He called my repair service to investigate why his bedroom window was always drafty. This job was done with my good friend, Carl, who helped me do this project.
This post shows the four steps to prepare the window for stucco application.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows how the stucco wire in inter meshed together to create the backbone structure of the stucco wall.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the bottom row of the attic vent. The stucco wire was nailed with galvanized roofing nails to secure it in place.
