concrete on mesh wire cracking in shower remodel

qa4meJuly 22, 2013

We're installing a new shower in So Cal. The shower will include an existing window, but the window/wall will be closed part way up taking it from 43" x 43" to 43" x 18"H. So Builder is using mesh wire and concrete for walls both inside and outside before thin set and stucco is applied. Today we noticed a lot of cracking in the concrete both inside and outside; should we be concerned about this i.e. future leaking etc.?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Maybe this should be posted on the Remodel forum too. This sounds like an exterior wall.
