Live long and Plaster

On the professional side of building and repairing things, there is the all super important foundation.
This is important for a simple home here in the U.S. as to the tallest skyscraper in the world such as the one in Dubai, half a mile high into the sky.
Homes here in the U.S. back in 1975 were now required to have a metal drip screed installed, this 4-inch metal flashing is fastened below the mudsill to protect the foundation top piece of wood called the mudsill-plate.
This code requirement was created to give a new home a stucco stop, and a natural expansion joint with the drip screed and allow any rainwater to flow out of for maintenance free stucco finishes on top of the concrete foundation harmlessly.

This code has nothing to do with bugs.
I have heard this strange connection to insects for well over the 35 plus years that I have been in this trade and will more than likely continue to listen to this rumor, it is just a myth.
The fact remains bugs can’t go between stucco and concrete, however with a drip screed this makes the wall “More” susceptible to insects such as termites,
FYI, Termites are mainly attracted to wood which stays wet.

In English “plaster” usually means a material used for the interiors of buildings, while “render” commonly refers to external applications.

Kirk recommends, Just plaster it, whether it ends up good or bad it will be an adventure.
