I AM NOT A MASON, but I have a question for anyone who may be willing to sharing some advice.
I'm planning on laying (stuccoing/pargeting) up a Quikrete product called Quikwall, on my 90 year old brick and mortar home's exterior walls, instead of repointing/tuckpointing all of my homes brick joints. In most cases, the mortar is in very bad (deteriorating) condition and I need a bid of advice on a couple of questions that I can't seem to get answers from Quikrete Inc itself.
1. Besides pressure washing my home's brick and mortar walls before applying the Quikwall product, should I also apply/brush-on a concrete adhesive product before laying up the cement? The product labeling doesn't call for the adhesive, but some web sites I've visited, think it a prudent idea before applying the exterior bonding cement.
2. Since the product tauts its fiberglass component as a strength and crack resistant factor in the concrete's product, does it mean that I do not have to use chicken wire over the brick and mortar, to aide in strengthening the surface bonding material?
