This Stucco weep or drip screeds below grade Video is for those who wish to understand how to install proper metal flashings where you have to improvise to an existing home or a newly built one that has some unexpected foundations built that were not thought out well.
In this video I show metal flashing and how to counter each to complement and counter the other, or to save your mud sill and or plywood sheathing.
Also in this video I explain more on how we compromise the new codes stucco rules of a six inch ground clearance.
When I say new rules, these rules were passed in 1975 I believe.
A fella like me can do this type of fix on an existing home, it would not be allowed on a newly built home, as current codes don't permit this type of building.
