Hello Renee: The July 1996 issue of Journal of Light Construction (JLC) has recommendations (on p. 19) for installation of wood trim with Tudor-style stucco walls. The reply (to an inquiry) mentions staining of stucco from water-soluble extractives in cedar trim. Also, if water leaks behind the trim, it might cause leaching of water-soluble asphalt components in the building paper, if an asphalt impregnated building paper is used. I would be surprised if pine trim was used (unless preservative treated). John Rose, Tacoma, WA ______ >Please help this person. Make sure you send a response to him too.
