steps and patio doors
Swami-Glad to see you have reappeared. I've enjoyed your info at stucconews.com for many years so much that I've printed out all the info and saved it for a reference. Here I've enclosed some photos of the problem:
I need to repair stucco around sliding glass door but it butts up against the existing step down. There is about a 1-1/2 gap between the wire and the step now (probably the thickness of the stucco + mortar). Should I put a barrier between the stucco repair and the remortar of the step? Will I have to remove the whole step? (I will, of course, be repairing the damaged paper and wire lath.)
Hope you can advise. Thank You.
