Info on Stucco and Plastering-December,2019-fifty-ninth issue
NO Maximum thickness for stucco.
I hope you are well and slinging mud.
We have a situation where the post-tensioned slab overhangs our CMU wall up to 2-inches in some areas (not uniform). Adjusting the solid base isn't an option and we need to make the final finish flush (CMU to PT slab).
What is the maximum thickness of a plaster wall over CMU?
I was thinking we could apply multiple coats and work in a layer with self-furring lath for internal strength.
Are there certain things we could also do like use bonding agent, fibers, mesh etc.?
Have you ever had to do something like this?
2 inches is nothing.
The wall just needs to be built up
with two or three scratch coats, scarifying every time.
You may have shrinkage cracks, but that is
fine. The finish coat should fill them in.
You may want to let the brown coat set up at least a week before putting on the finish.
We once straightened up a basement where the concrete was 5 inches out of square.
5 inches thick. It still looks fine today.
Nice to hear from you
