Stucco is a little easier to attach a ledger board to because you don’t need to remove the stucco like you would with siding. The only thing that needs to be cut on the stucco is a groove that the ledger sits inside of.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN ANY DECKING PROJECT IT IS CRUCIAL THAT YOU CHECK WITH LOCAL BUILDING CODES. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR ABILITY TO DO ANY DECKING INSTALLATION CALL A LOCAL LICENSED CONTRACTOR.
- Cut a straight line an inch into the stucco with circular saw.
- Insert flashing into the groove that was just cut.
- Predrill holes in the stucco and ledger.
- Fasten ledger to the house with lag screw.
- Seal the top of the flashing with silicone caulk.
After completing these steps you will have a sturdy ledger board attached to your stucco wall. Ensure the caulk is completely dry and sealed. Lag bolts should be tightened but only as tight as the socket wrench lets you. Do not over tighten lag bolts.
