Drip Screed

Trim Purpose

Specs, MSDS, and LEED Information for Flannery Trims & Products

Flannery’s Drip Screeds create a drip edge for moisture to “drip” off of stucco fascia edges thus preventing it from running back across a soffit. Drip Screeds are typically set at the corner joint where fascias meet a soffit. They come with a fascia leg that acts as a stucco stop and a reveal which acts as a drip edge. Select sizes of Flannery’s Drip Screeds are available with Alignment Splices to assist in the installation process.

Install all Drip Screeds using full ten-foot lengths wherever possible. Attach Drip Screeds to the framing with nails, screws, or other approved fastening methods. Building paper or the weather resistant barrier must be installed over the vertical attachment flange of the Drip Screed. All plaster trims must be cut accurately and installed with tight, neat joints. All nailing flanges must be covered with lath and all butt joints must be sealed. Manufacturer recommends that a carbide tip blade along with lubricant be used when cutting any aluminum trims.


Flannery offers an Aluminum Alignment Splice to ease the installation process and create crisp and clean butt joints and lines for its 7/8” Drip Screed (DS 875-875).


Flannery offers prefabricated corners for intricate building designs that utilize intersecting lines and bands on exterior walls. Prefabricated corners are mitered and then welded together at their attachment flanges, then vinyl tape is applied to the back of the reveal to prevent water intrusion. Factory welded corners come with 6” legs, however custom leg lengths can be ordered.


Flannery can radius Aluminum Drip Screeds when the trim runs along a “curved” or “radiused” plane. Radiused material is bent to a project’s dimensional requirements and is considered a custom product. Download the Radius Order form below to place an order or receive a quote.
