Can anyone out there explain the "who,what,when,& why" that established brick molding as the "now to be, universally accepted" casing that will come on all new pre-hung exterior door and window units?
Brick homes in our area are certainly not predominate and at least 50% of the time, we tear them off, fabricate, and install an appropriate molding.
I have this sneaking suspicion that this all came about as a result of the profit motive.
Set me straight and educate me if I'm all wet.
