Exterior walls- lath, stucco & paint
Exterior walls- lath, stucco & paint: We continue by wrapping all bullnosed corners in expanded metal lath. Next, stucco netting is wrapped around the entire home covering all of the rigid insulation. We then hand trowel the entire house with a thinker layer of SBC stucco. Once this has cured we prime and paint the entire house.
