Installing stucco walls is an excellent way to strengthen and beautify a home’s exterior. A stucco install brings out its architectural details. It also draws attention to the house’s best features. The video aims to help you understand how to go about a stucco install project.
There are several things you need to know before beginning work.
Check over all materials for accuracy. Be sure to note any damages or shortages as soon as you discover them. Before applying any stucco, mount the siding for the wall, top, and bottom. Doing this will ensure that the stucco install will not crack or detach from its backing.
Build a rough outline of your stucco wall before installing it. It will help to measure and mark the location you need to install in the wall. With this, you can cut corners on the construction of the wall, cutting out materials that do not need to be there. Before working on site, put together all materials for stucco installation.
Prepare your tools and supplies in advance so they are handy on-site. Make sure you sharpen all nails and screws for your stucco application before use. Give yourself a little extra time to prepare the wall’s outline carefully. You can quickly correct mistakes if you have time to make adjustments along the way.
