|Counter flashing is put on
before the stucco.
The flange is overlapped with another layer of
tarpaper and metal lath.
These areas are roofed last. This avoids walking on the tiles and breaking them.
|The roof is put on, at least for the most part,
before the stucco. Spanish tile (and slate) roofs are heavy, and it is important to weight down the roof before the lath and stucco is put on. This avoids buckling later.
|A second layer of tarpaper and self furring
metal lath is put on.
||Horizontal trim boards are also flashed and
overlapped with tarpaper.
|Window sills are formed and filled with
lath and mortar.
|Band on the chimney is formed.
|The band and cap are finished
with a float
finish. This is not only decorative, but the smoother finish should aid water run-off.
|The rest of the chimney gets
a knock down texture.
|How we did the texture:
First a scratch coat is applied. Then mortar is dashed on with a stiff brush. They make a special brush for this, but anything stiff will do.
|After the dashed on mortar
sets firm, it is then knocked down with a trowel.
|A view of the old house. The
texture matches on the money.
||Extreme care needs to be
taken not to walk on Spanish roof tiles. The ridge vent was
left off to allow us to put on a scaffold board.
|Clay pipes are made by tying
metal lath around
a cardboard tube and coating with mortar.
|I sawed the pipes after the
tube had set overnight.
I oiled the cardboard first so I could remove it
I drove bolts in the wall and hung my pipes on like a picture.
After two or three coats of mortar, the pipes are
about the right thickness.
