replacing the stucco
retaining walls are deteriorated
This project is phase 2, phase one being the
administration building we restuccoed 3 years ago.
Phase 2 is replacing the stucco on the wing
on the back.
Before-stucco is badly deteriorated.
The old soft bricks under the stucco retaining walls are deteriorated because there is no drainage.
Stucco removed from old bricks
old retaining walls had the bricks replaced

the stucco protrudes out past the steps,
drip edge protecting the stucco
The front and rear steps had the stucco replaced or patched several times.
Arrows show how the stucco protrudes out
past the steps, allowing water to get in the wall.
The steps were completely taken apart and
rebuilt to allow a drip edge protecting the stucco. The steps come out an inch and a half allowing room for the stucco and a drip edge. These old lime stone stair treads were cut with a chisel.
