How big of a rainscreen
Building in climate zone 3, 20 miles from the shore in Southern California. Remodel with addition of a 100 year old stucco house with a 4’ overhang roof and parapet walls.
the existing stucco has felt or paper (I’m not sure) it.
For the remodeled areas I’m not sure what to use. options I’ve considered include 2 layers of paper, tyvek stucco wrap, Benjamin obdyke hydro gap or a larger rainscreen.
how big of a gap do I need in this area? Much of the stucco is well protected except for the balloon framed parapet walls.
Thanks for considering my question!
