These Exterior Stucco Moldings (or "wall bands") are designed to frame and separate sections of a wall. Moldings are most commonly used along the building joint between the first and second floor, or just along a section of wall to fill in otherwise "plain" space. Stucco moldings can additionally be used along the bottom of a wall for a more finished termination. Unlike some molded/extruded products, Decoramould's moldings are cut from a solid material which gives it crisp, straight lines.Example:

Stucco Molding Installation
Styorfoam-core stucco Moldings can be installed either during the initial construction phase, or added afterwards as a renovation. This eases the design process by allowing you to spread the decisions out over time, giving you time to find exactly what you're looking for and spreading the financial outlay over years instead of weeks. Some of the worst design mistakes are made in a rushed state - either being over-conscious of cost and selecting a molding that is too small, or going with something too large that will overpower the trim on windows and doors.
Due to the light weight of the materials, no additional structural reinforcing is required. While concrete moldings can weigh hundreds of pounds, styrofoam-core moldings weigh just a few pounds per foot, and are recommended to be installed with construction adhesive (not masonry anchors), while matching the look of upscale concrete products. The relatively thin, reinforced concrete coating makes it simple to cut and miter on site with standard wood-working tools, again saving you from having to buy specialized concrete cutting tools.
Stucco Molding Design
You'll want to choose your stucco moldings based on the size of the wall section you're framing - larger homes (2 stores +) will want to go for 8" or more, while bungalows will want to choose moldings that are under 8". This helps keeps the design elements proportional, and helps increase the aesthetic as a whole.
Cost of Precast Concrete Moldings
Decoramould's moldings are anywhere from 50%-90% less expensive than comparable concrete moldings. This is due in part to the fact that they're made from less expensive materials (90% of it is lightweight styrofoam), and partly due to the fact that they're less labour intensive to install. Concrete mouldings need to be structurally supported, often requiring a section of the exterior wall to be cut out in order to integrate the mouldings into the wall. Additionally, the weight of a concrete molding can be 10x as much as ours (20 pounds vs. 200 pounds), requiring specialized moving equipment and higher transportation fees.
Idea: Stucco Garage Moldings
Adding simple header moldings to the stucco above a garage door can add character to a house. Stucco decor like keystones and flowers may be used almost anywhere along with moldings to add more detail. The lighting beside the garage door -- aside from lighting the driveway -- will cast interesting shadows on the molding itself and the stucco above the molding.In this image:
