Thanks for the good information.
Newbies to Mexico should realize that John's advice may not work in other areas and other states in Mexico. The ambient weather conditions in Yucatán, Chiapas, Vera Cruz, (and desert states in the north?) and building methods & materials are different enough between regions that each area has its own special requirements that good local contractors know.
e.g. Fester does not sell "Fester Acriton" in Yucatán. Tile roofs are almost unheard-of here in Yucatán, where 99% of our homes have flat roofs made of vigas and special concrete blocks, and our near constant moh, moisture, and moss attack our concrete = requiring solutions specialized for Yucatán. Our albaniles also mix concrete here in very different proportions, which really affects which solution a home needs.
This is similar to the USA, where painting, insulation, roofing etc practices that work well in the high altitudes of snowy Colorado don't work so well in Houston, and vice versa.
