This gaping gap was right over badly damaged brick.
I made a bunch of this last summer just for chimneys.
Flex con is an acrylic bonding admixture I use a lot.
White portland is the ticket for small jobs. It sets fast and allows for same day
or next day completion.
The texture on the right doesn't match the texture on the left, so we did something in between.
Deteriorated or poorly done caps are a large source of stucco failure. We embedded two quarters in the cap, one heads up and one tails up.
The flange on the roof was put on the stucco, instead of underneath. Here, we cut the stucco back to the
brick, and pushed the flange against the brick.
The roof flange was attached to the wall with lead anchors and goop. Lead anchors pull out of soft bricks and stucco over time.
The goop failed, too, of course.
The flashing is like building a roof over the edge of the roof.
The stucco overlaps the top flange of the flashing.
This was a small job, but it gave me the opportunity to cover a lot of important details.
