The stucco exterior wall of my house extends beyond or overhangs the foundation.
The bottom of this wall channel or overhang has metal strips with weep holes mounted flat up against the botom of this wall channnel. The term for this might be "J" type weep screed? Anyway, This metal strip with weep holes has about a 10 foot section that is rusting and corroded. I believe this metal strip(s) has a lip that curves up to attach against the wall. So this lip is embedded in the stucco-I think? Where can I get instruction, literature, book for learning how to do this job.
Somone suggested that I might be able to remove the rusted metal portion and rivet new metal strips onto old remaining good metal.
The job is not as easy as some make it sound. I have a website mostly devoted to stucco. www.badstucco.com What part of the country are you in? Sounds like the metal did not have a good coat of galvinise on it. Substandard material. I can be reached at the # on the web site it is toll free for you.
