Paper and wire stucco

A double layer of .30 min tar paper envelopes and tie in with sealing, window and door flashing,  diverters and plaster stop wall terminations. Galvanized stucco wire then stapled into a studded wall prior to cement trowel applications.

This mixture has no limit on its use as it can be used in any form of construction activity like walls, roofs, floors, etc. The stucco paper helps in giving strength to this mixture along with other properties like water resistance etc.

Our Process

  • When we are repairing stucco with paper and wire:
  • We first “seal all window, door and vent openings on the wall with Blue-skin primer.
  • We install all sealed flashings on all openings and plaster stop wall termination areas.
  • Then we install “2 layers of 30.min tar paper with clear-skin sealing tape and tie into original envelope where needed.
  • Then “wire and mesh is fastening into the studded frame”.
  • This removes any dirt or grime from your surface so that your new stucco will adhere properly.
  • After cleaning your surface, we can begin applying your new layer of paper and wire to cover your existing layer of stucco.
  • Once your layers of paper and wire are in place, we make sure to seal them with another coat of mortar mix using a trowel or float knife.
  • This final layer will protect your repair work while it cures over time.
