new window install into old broke glass/rock stucco exterior


I am installing new construction windows into my 47year old home. The homes exterior consists of a rough broken glass rock stucco that was coverd with elastomaric 14 +years ago. I want to cut the stucco out around the window, remove old window, install new and frame new window with wood, butting up against the stucco. My conscern is making it water tight . Any one out there done anything like this?

4" cutting wheel, or a Oscillating cutter will do the job.

You need to paper and seal the windows for a quality job, leak free; http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...WrZBbBZoIUXgxw

The papering will be similar, not the drip cap or vented walls: http://www.mtcc1170.com/images/BCRainScreen.pdf

Different stucco, similar flashing details: http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...X1IjstvXQPNoxA

You are welcome! Stucco is a specialized trade though if careful and read up..........Hope it works out.
