Fwd: Deck structure attached through Stucco

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am working on a deck design for a house in Berkeley.  The deck is about 9
ft. above grade and is 10 ft. from the house back wall.  I typically remove
stucco, provide flashing and bolt new ledger to existing rim joist.  I have
seen some contractors attaching the deck ledger directly through the stucco.
 My client was advised by a contractor that removal of stucco is not
necessary.  Obviously this is cheaper solution, but I am not comfortable with
this situation.  I have advised my clients accordingly.

Any thoughts, comments ??
