Stucco Repair & Install Front Door

While removing the door, we found signs of rotten wood

Since, there was rotten wood surrounding the door, the stucco and drywall had to be removed so we could replace the frame.

 Once the stucco and drywall had been removed, next task was to replace the frame and re-install the door.

After the frame had been replaced, the next step is to install the green board and Tyvek paper.

After everything has been sealed and waterproofed, it is time install the Stucco Lath and apply the first coat of stucco.

While on the inside, insulation form is sprayed around the door, the drywall replace, tapped & mudded ready for to spray texture.

Once the drywall mud and stucco has dried, its time to apply the texture.

Once everything has dried, it is time to paint
