Major Concerns of Stucco Suppliers:

1. How to install pre-casted mouldings in a strait line with an uneven substrate?
Whether the moulding is pre-coated or not, it is always easier to straighten the substrate first and then install the mouldings.
2. What is the warranty on Decorawall products?
Decorawall has set out a comprehensive warranty in accordance with published specifications in our literature.
3. Will the pre-coated mouldings diminish the sales of their base coat?
The sales of the base coat will not decrease, since the most common way of installing out pre-coated moulds is to a wall that has a layer of mesh and base coat. TH wall preparation with the mesh and base coat offsets and reductions related to the use of our pre-coated mouldings. Base coat is also applied to the back of our mouldings, using a notched trowel, before attaching it to the wall.
