About the Book
“The Metal Lath Handbook” was written in an effort to aid in
the understanding of this complicated cladding system. It contains information
that should help even the most experienced lathing contractor or designer
understand the proper installation of metal lath as intended by ASTM C1063,
the metal lath installation specification. The book contains over 230 pages
of information, photos, and details that contain information on almost all
standard metal lath installations and sheds a great deal of light on standard
industry practices and their relationship to appropriate ASTM specifications
that govern them.
Contains 230 pages of information, photos, and details that contain

While many books have
been published throughout the years dealing with lath and plaster or stucco
applications, this is the first book available in decades (maybe the first
ever) to deal exclusively with metal lath and its relationship to portland
cement stucco. Not just a few chapters on lath, but an entire book dedicated
to the understanding of this complicated installation.
The photos and details help to depict the proper way to install various
components and also are used to show what can happen when components are
improperly installed. In addition to lath and plaster installations, the
author offers insight into the installation of lath to form shapes such
as rocks or trees, tile installations and floor leveling using metal lath.
