"My crew really likes the ease of its use and I like the safety on the job site. Just last week, on another job site, I ripped open my leg with a sheet of metal lath. I had to get stitches. I know that won’t happen on the San Luis job site to me or any of my crew. And, we're saving at least one-third if not one-half on labor because it goes up so quickly." — Al Markley, Markley's Exterior Insulation Systems Inc., Tallahassee, FL
“At first, I was skeptical about the material,” explains Bill Dudiak of Duben Construction. “After I tried PermaLath, I was surprised; it really held the cement well. My crew liked it too; they said it was easier to install than metal lath and easier to get a flatter first coat of a 2-coat scratch and brown. I’ve already started another 6,000 sq. ft. job using it.”

“I have used PermaLath, in place of 20 gauge stucco netting, on three jobs now, and it does appear to save labor cost. In all three instances, we were able to lath an average of 3,000 sq. ft. in 8 hours with 5 men or 40 man hours. This includes accessories. I would say that the savings I obtained was close to 50 percent.”

"We used PermaLath on the columns of a strip mall. It saved us labor and material costs; it was easier to cut than metal lath and quicker to install. I'm glad we used it since it saved us money."

"I'm always looking to try something different to increase efficiency. We've used PermaLath on four homes now ranging from 2800 – 3200 sq. ft. and the applicators love it. It goes up faster, it's easier to work with and there seems to be less waste than with metal lath. I'm sure as we continue to use it we'll see even greater increases in our efficiency and cost savings."
