I need to know if the drip edge at the top of old windows _truly_ needs to extend out past the width of the window. All of my windows were "clipped" when vinyl siding was installed, and now that I have taken the siding off I need to figure out how to fix them. The best way I can come up with is to just cap the scar left by the siding contractor with a small piece of wood, and then stucco patch the hole where the molding used to be. This would look the best and allow me to retain what is left of the original molding. Any help?
