I have a hole in the asphalt felt building paper under stucco that I need to reinforce with an asphalt felt patch before restuccoing. On the top, the patch could be inserted under a run of existing asphalt paper. On the sides, there are no existing paper ends to insert the patch under.
My idea is to staple the sides of the patch to studs and,hopefully, find a sealant for the sides which will adhere them to the existing asphalt felt. Can someone recommend a
long-term, waterproof sealant that will do this?
Also, for smaller punctures in the asphalt building paper (nail holes and small tears), what sealants may be preferred or are to be avoided?
All experienced suggestions and thoughts are appreciated.
