I am renovating a painted brick home built in 1979. I want to stucco over the brick but when I ask my contractor about metal lathe vs. bonding agent, he laughed! I cannot seem to find any hard fast info on this. Can you tell me what is the BEST method for applying stucco over painted brick?

I've done this many times. I would first,scrape any loose paint, then install wire lathe with masonry nails, and you should be good to go with the new stucco..
