Stucco isn't particularly common in my area. What is the proper way to
attach a house bracket to a building with stucco siding? This is cement
stucco over metal lathing -- not EIFS.
Of course, following the manufacturer's specifications is the way to go.
Radian *does* show the bracket attached directly to the exterior siding
-- however the diagram shows horizontal overlapping siding -- not
stucco. Do I bolt right through the stucco? Do I put a backer between
the bracket and the stucco? Do I remove the stucco and put in a
properly flashed ledger board to bolt through?
