Stucco is a widely used building material and exterior coating/wall covering which is applied to walls and ceilings. Stucco starts as a wet slurry type material which upon application cures or hardens into a solid, weather resistant finish. Stucco is typically applied in three different coats: scratch coat, brown coat and a finish coat. The application of stucco on different surfaces can vary, however the end result is the same, a well-finished surface that is long-lasting and durable.

Plaster wall construction pre-dated the use of drywall due to its versatile range of uses. Plaster, which is still used today, has some highly desirable characteristics which include: fire resistance, noise reduction and a high degree of flexibility in its application making it ideal for use on challenging wall sections, curves and tight locations. Typically applied in layers, plaster walls are built upon a wood or metal base or lath. Often referred to as “lath and plaster walls,” the lath provides a reinforcing structure to support the plaster or stucco- based materials.

Lathing systems are available in a wide-range of material types and configurations to meet the needs of today’s building requirements. Metal lath is commonly used for interior and exterior plaster and stucco applications.
