Foundation Weep Screed
provides a straight and true screed surface at the base of stucco walls, while allowing excess moisture to escape the back of the stucco membrane. It is important for the water-resistant backing paper (Lath Paper) and metal lath to overlap the nailing flange of the weep screed in order to guide the water to the exterior. Check with local building codes for the proper clearance above grade. This bead is required by most building codes in the United States on all framed walls as part of a drainage system for exterior stucco applications (ASTM C1063). Locally, 7/8” thick stucco is the minimum required over wood and lath. Therefore, your Foundation Weep Screed should be 7/8”.
Flashing should be applied in the form of asphalt-saturated Lath Paper or flashing strips behind all expansion joints and all joints should be imbedded in caulk. The 3½ inch nailing flange serves as a flashing when water resistant breathable building paper (i.e. Tyvek) or paper backed lath is installed over the flange. The “V” stop is punched with holes primarily intended as keying mechanisms. These also offer minor moisture weeping capabilities. As stucco cures it will shrink slightly away from the “V” stop allowing moisture to flow down the building paper and exit down the sloped surface. Available in Vinyl (Galvanized, zinc alloy by special request) in 10 ft. lengths. Sold by the Piece Packaged 30 pcs. per Box. Available Nationwide.
