So I had a few questions as far as stucco vents go. Here is an image of what we are talking about:
What would be the best way to repair this hole? Just some wire mesh over it?
Some follow on questions
- How did they mount this wire mesh to the stucco? My best guess is that they stapled it before the applied the 3 coats of stucco and it is semi embedded.
- Is it recommended to paint over the mesh? Why was this done?
From this second picture on the bottom the mesh has started to come up. I'm semi confused at how this can be. Is the mesh attached to some type of aluminum frame that was originally embedded into the stucco and then the mesh started to come out from the frame?
