I am having a company do stone veneer on my house. I’ve never done it myself and wanted a pro job done. I’m replacing the siding myself and have a pretty good understanding of carpentry skills when it comes to framing.
I had the house wrapped in tyvek over OSB already.
The stone guys installed the wire with was looks to be 1/2 staples over the tyvek. Then a scratch coat over that. Is that ok to do that? I would think they would need nails or at least 1 1/4 staples.
Is installing the mesh right over the tyvek ok or should there be a different barrier on top of the tyvek?
Finally, is installing veneer on OSB okay? I am now seeing that that isn’t good practice to do that.
I live in Ohio where we get 4 seasons and extreme high and low temperatures.
