Proper way to waterproof Denglass for stucco or render below
Hello everyone, in this video I explain some of the reason behind the ever popular DensGlass sheathing.
I encounter DensGlass sheathing often these days as its specked out more and more.
Today as of 2014 I see it’s use in so many commercial building that I figured it must be the newest and best exterior sheathing available.
iT’s your typical gypsum base with two layer of water resistant fiberglass wrapping on the back side as well as the front.
I have gone over it with stucco many times.
We apply lath just as it were a typical wood sheathing or shear wall plywood, which mean proper lathing.
If you use a water resistant or acrylic stucco finish and mesh the joints and then apply another finish weather acrylic or not, it will eventually leak as the seams are not water tight, look at a sheet online and notice the sides have gypsum exposed.
I have seen a video where a few fellas did not waterproof with two layer of paper but instead just skimmed the joints, do yourself a favor and lath as it were a shear wall plywood with 2 layers of paper plus the wire as if done properly this won’t leak.
Google DensGlass if you need real answers to its proper applications and reasoning.
In this video I am simply repeating what I have learned from the many different contractors who have installed this DensGlass sheathing.
I usually treat Denglass as any other sherwall which means we lath as we would new a plywood shear wall.
