removing exterior door

lovinlife06May 30, 2010

I am getting rid of a doorway and making it wall.

I took out the door jamb without any damage inside or out but cant get the metal edging that wraps around the edge of the stucco. Do I break away the stucco to get it out? The metal edging is nailed to the wood 2X4's in the wall.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I break the stucco back and remove the mil-core. Then lap the new lath under the old lath, folding the old paper under to achieve a wire to wire lap.
This serves to lessen the joint cracking because the existing lath is "tempered" by the previously applied stucco products.
