  • Stucco window detailing

    Seen today on a 20-year-old house near San Antonio, TX.

    Boosted lintels and sills, painted wood casings and mulls, the windows sub-framed with 2x4 inset into 2x6 wall framing, so the stucco can be rolled into the casings, probable using a quarter-round molding underneath.

    So my question is, what do you suppose was used, back in 1994 when this was built, as the substrate parts for the edge rolls, and the lintel and sills? The sills and lintels are likely not stone. They are stucco-coated, and when I knock on the surfaces with my hand or a stick, I am not sensing it as stone.

    Foam moldings that are skimmed with one coat of plaster.
