Wire mesh over polystyrene installation questions
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Forum,

What type of wire mesh do I need to attach to polystyrene wall?
What types and lengths of fasteners?
How far apart should fasteners be?How close to the OSB do I to put wire?
The Tyvek is flush with OSB. Do I need to cover OSBs edge with anything?
I reside in WV and am trying to get weathered in.

Thank you for answering all these questions.

Are you installing an Exterior Insulating Finishing System (EIFS)? If so, I encourage you to follow the manufacturer's specifications exactly. The manufacturers all have details available, especially to avoid water intrusion. If you are doing something else over the foam let us know what it is so we can properly direct you.
