Whats up guys? My name is Jon and in new here. Got a couple questions. A friend of mine just got a new house and hes wanting me to do some work for him. There is a back patio that has three stucco walls surrounding it that are appx. 8ft. tall. But theres no way out! He`s wanting me to go in and cut an opening and build and install a metal gate. Now, I`m completely capable of taking care of this, I just need the best route to take, as far as the stucco goes. The way I see it is two options, cut the desired opening and re-stucco around the edges, OR (I`m liking this one more) cut the opening and and case the opening in with either wood or some sort of vinyl. This is out in the weather, so take that into consideration. So, what would my best option be? Is there a fool-proof stucco setup I could get? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
