first let me say this, here in ks if you have anything but a ranch style house ,your oddball. so this house is a little unusual around here,so no one really knows what to do with it since it's not masonite and pine trim
looks to me like this house has all the vertical and horizontal trim nailed in place and then they came in and floated the stucco to it. well now 80 years later it's all pretty rotten and i'm not sure how to handle it.
do you just pry out the wood ,fit new [cedar?]and caulk the heck out of it?
i have a idea but before anyone calls me a hack and gets the boot for it,i'll take full credit for it. idea is to replace whats completely rotten,leave the rest. then take a pc of 1/4 hardi siding and rip it about 3/4 of a inch wider than whats there now. run a big bead of caulk down the old wood where it meets the stucco,then slap the hardi in place ,overlapping 3/8 on each side. then run a nice bead of caulk and go on. do all of the trim that way.
does that get the hack award? anyway let me know what you do to handle this.
trying to post a pic ,we'll see.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T
MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE
the older i get ,
the more people tick me off
