cutting stucco for terminte control

Posted by Bob T. on July 26th, 1998 11:13 PM

Earlier discussion of cutting stucco(5/20/98)only addressed how it looked after the job. I don't have a current termite problem, but my treatment company is recommending cutting for my stucco over wood frame home (on a slab). I understand how termites can get under the stucco, but my question is, "Why is it better to expose the plywood under the stucco by cutting the stucco off several inches above grade?" Even with good paint it doesn't seem like the seal would be as good, and the company literature doesn't say anything about sealing the wood.
