J. Stucco Drip Stop
The Stucco Drip Stop is a formed metal product, which is available in Aluminum, Copper, Galvanized Steel, and Stainless Steel. It serves as a termination point for plaster cement where a drip edge may be required. The Stucco Drip Stop can be utilized above exterior openings (i.e. windows, doors, etc.) to assist in the prevention of moisture from gaining access to a window or doorframe.
Install all Stucco Drip Stops over the window flashing. Attach Stucco Drip Stops to the framing with nails, screws, or other approved fastening methods. The weather resistant barrier (two layers of building paper required if plywood sheathing is used) must overlap the 3 1/2” vertical attachment flange. All window drips 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.
The Stucco Drip Stop comes in 10' lengths and can be ordered in a variety of sizes. The Ground Leg (dimension "A") is available in multiple sizes and custom widths. The Drip Edge (dimension “B”) is 1/4” standard, but can be ordered in a larger size. Please specify the sizes needed on the order form below.
