> Dear seaoc:
> I have a 1 1/2 year old tudor home that is mostly stucco and pine trim.
> When the home was six months old, we noticed visible signs of stucco
> discoloration below the trim and it has gotten significantly worse over
the
> last year.  The lumber company tells us that the rough pine trim was
dipped
> in an oil base primer on all sides and then two coats of acrylic
exterior
> paint were applied after the trim was nailed up on the house.  The trim
was
> not caulked.  The paint company inspected the trim and said that the
paint
> was not the cause and they suggested that water was running behind the
trim,
> but they weren't sure what was causing the discoloration.  Do you have
any
> suggestions as to what might be causing this or where we might turn to
> research it further?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  
Thank
> you,  Renee D'Amico
