Fwd: Re: Deck structure attached through Stucco

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thank you for your interest and responses.

It seems that most of the responders agree that stucco should be removed.

Points by Fraklin Lew are well taken.  In fact because there was some merrit
in retaining the stucco, I asked the question.  I am equally concerned about
leakage and durability over long period of time.

I have been authorized by the owners to proceed with the design.  My decision
to remove stucco has been accepted by the owner and architect.  Architect has
agreed to show the flashing details.

For your information, the outer side of the deck will be supported with new
foundation with tie beams perpendicular to house wall and connected to
existing foundation.  I always prefer to tie the new foundation to exsting
foundation with tie beams.

Thank you for your responses.
