New window install on existing stucco home

1230 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  ChuckF.
So I have my windows put in but my question is on my exterior trim options. I purchased 1x6 engineered wood trim and have cut the stucco around the opening for the trim to fit. The problem is that when I test fit, my trim is sitting below the level of the stucco and not flush with the stucco. I'd like my trim flush or even a little proud of the stucco. Can I build the trim up behind it to bring it to where I want it? How would I go about that?
The other issue is after the trim is installed how do I patch the gap between trim and stucco?

Do you glue or nail the shims? I would think you would want to minimize the amount of nail holes going through your flashing/house wrap
