Hi, one of the wall edges on our concrete tilt-up warehouse building
has chipped. I noticed the inside has wood. Could this be the
insulation layer of the tilt-up panel? How can I patch this chip?
Here are the pictures of the chip: http://flic.kr/p/8DDD8K .
That looks like a stucco layer.
I imagine if it were all tilt up it would not have wood in it.
Or maybe they put wood in the corners for attachments but this seems highly
Regardless, I would chip away any loose debris, attach some screws-small, to
the wood and wire/chicken wire mesh or.....and then grout with a stucco
mix....sand, cement, lime or clay.....
The screws and the wire help make a bed that the mortar mix will stick to
Sure use the pre-mix....do a dry pack....less water........
Also a few studs like screws and or wire mesh helps hold.
Do a layer, then come back and coat it.
It may tool when partially set up too.
Besides attaching the wire to the wood using screws/nails, should I
also somehow attach the wire to the existing stucco edges? If so, how?
Should I use lathing screws that offset the wire from the wood
Thanks again for all your input
