Dennis I don't know of any L.A. city or other changes for veneer. My concern is that i have yet to go to a job where the veneer was being properly installed. THE TIES IN THE SIMPSON CATALOG DO NOT MEET CODE ! In my area no local supplier sells ties that meet code. I personally have to help the contractor order from Burke down in L.A.. And how does the #9 gauge wire embed in the stone veneer anyway? It can not curve with the stone. It does not work right ! I came up with a compromise on the last job since the contractor already had a billion Simpson substandard ties i had him get Burke ties and use them both. The Burke ties and #9 wire were embedded in the mud behind the veneer and the Simpson ties were embedded in between the veneer joints( double coverage ) . This is much better than the average job with just Simpson ties but i still would like to see a better solution.
