Exterior plaster systems such as stucco and stone veneer have been a part of the residential and commercial construction industries for decades. Improper installation of exterior plaster finish systems can lead to significant moisture issues and cracking. This workshop will explore core building science principles, relevant exterior plaster code requirements, review proper flashing techniques, lath requirements, and treatment of joints between dissimilar materials. Rainscreen systems and products will also be discussed including their potential benefit to the exterior wall system. This workshop will also discuss installation guidelines and details for manufactured stone veneer.
1. Comprehend the impact that building science principles can have on the resiliency of residential buildings with exterior plaster assemblies.
2. Understand the code requirements that relate to the construction of exterior plaster and thin stone veneer assemblies.
3. Relate the effects of improper construction technique to occupant risk and building failure.
4. Detail appropriate flashing components in order to provide cost effective and durable construction solutions.
