Flannery Plaster trim

Flannery plaster and stucco trim.

This aluminum reveal is a half inch wide and has a 3/4" ground for a 3/4 stucco thickness. See my review of Flannery trim here ...

I was amazed at the quality and the innovation of Flannery Plaster and stucco trim. In addition to these reveals, they make reveals with drip edges, weeps, two piece expansion joints that really expand, and other products improving the quality and value of traditional stucco and plaster applications. Please read more about what I said about Flannery trim here. Their website is clear and informative and you can even download the whole catalog as a PDF file.
