HardieTrim on a Stucco House
Currently my home has old, fairly degraded cedar trim around windows. It has to be replaced. I thought about just filling in to the windows with stucco, but the finish might not match well and could crack. So I considered those foam, cement-coated pop-out boards. Would be ok, but not thrilled about styrofoam anything, and just ok with the pop-out look. Then I looked at Hardietrim, but I’ve not heard of it being used on a stucco home. I’ve only viewed it on a home with siding, and thought it looked really nice. Would love to hear from building professionals about Hardietrim on a stucco home — would it be weird, ok, great, not the best option, not doable at all? Thanks in advance for any information / suggestions.
