Stucco Cornices are an easy way to add curb appeal to your home - by selecting a complimentary or contrasting color (usually to match the window trim) you're able to frame the house, adding architectural curb appeal. Cornices act as a "frame" to your walls, creating visual cues as to the boundaries of the surface and bringing out other architectural features such as trim and decorative accents.
Traditional options for cornices include wood or concrete, both of which have drawbacks. Wood cornices are generally limited in design to being flat, restricting any potential visual flare and relegating it to being a cheap band "drawn" across the wall. Wood also falls short in longevity as it's organic, meaning it's susceptible to mold and rot - and if there's anything less appealing than a bland wall, it's a wall framed with blotchy, decaying accents. Concrete cornices offer a higher end look with more design options, but are extremely heavy and costly which requires proper planning and possibly engineering to ensure the walls and installation can bear the weight. Styrofoam-core cornices coated with a modified cementitious coating offer the benefits of both without the drawbacks - it's not organic, has limitless design possibilities, and is light weight and inexpensive, making it simple to install as a retrofit.
These light-weight, styrofoam-core cornice moldings are a great way to add depth to your home design and smooth out the transition between the wall and soffit. They can be colored in any color of your choosing with exterior masonry paint, and we recommend matching the colour to pre-existing window/door trim and accents. Our cornices can be installed as a retrofit, requiring no additional structural reinforcing, simple construction adhesive is recommended.
Care needs to be taken not to overlap the cornice with any soffit vents, as this can impede airflow into the attic area and cause moisture build up, which leads to mould growth. Make sure to measure the distance between the wall and any soffit vents and select the depth of the cornice molding accordingly.
