Cement board backer on wrap and strap
« on: December 21, 2017, 08:57:26 AM »
My timber frame wrap and strap has 2 1/2" of xps on the exterior and I'm beginning the 4" strapping soon. Being built on a slab-on-grade I won't be starting my wood siding at grade, but 24" above. That 24" space from grade to siding will get a 10" stone veneer. With masonry and moisture considerations in mind I won't be running the wood strapping down to grade, but will terminate it at the 24" above grade mark. I was thinking I'd either rip cement board down and use it as the strapping behind the stone work (with diamond lath attached for backer), or use the cement board as a continuous 24" backer.
I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts and input. Thanks
