Old stucco was lime and sand on wood lath.
We replaced it with metal lath and Portland cement and sand.
Windows are covered before demo with corex, plastic sheets.
The framing wrapped with tar paper before the original window was installed.
Note the spacing between the original sheathing boards.
Original steel flashing over the windows had rusted away.
We replaced it with aluminum.
Homemade tarpaper was made by painting rolls of paper.
We see a lot of this on old houses.
Old wood lath was beveled back to allow mortar to key.
Second layer of tarpaper put on, staggering the joints.
Self-furring metal lath put on, staggering the joints for strength.
Scratch coat on metal lath.
Here, the scratch coat is scarified for a key.
We used fine rocks to match the old house.
I found rocks with the same screen size near Leesburg. We usually have to screen the rocks to match.
We re-coated the chimney cap.
We do this whether it needs it or not.
Just like 1920 again.
Pebble dash stucco is better than new.
