Drainage mat over continuous insulation for masonry, stucco, plaster, etc?
What have you used and/or recommend for a drainage mat over continuous insulation (EPS, Rockwool, Wood fiber)? How about attachment?
We’re considering having portions of our exterior facade clad with masonry or plaster. I have 2.5 – 3″ of continuous insulation and am wondering how I can get a drainage plane between the masonry/plaster and the continuous insulation. Furthermore, how would such a drainage plane be fastened to the stud wall in a manner that would be strong enough to support heavy masonry or plaster?
