In Seattle east side, any company can replace windows on stucco

We had some quote from Fella windows 2 years back for 2 arched windows and 2 skinny long windows all wood casement window, wood is pine. The price seems OK, but installation is ridiculous. Basically they said in order to install window on stucco siding they need to cut 2" bigger then window and trim after installation. We were about to sign to get new windows, sine we had difficulty to find any one to install on our stucco siding. Then we were told that Pella did not responsible for any damages on our siding during the installation. and we have to hire someone else to fix the damage and trim around window in exterior walls. So we called off from that one. Now we are planning master bedroom and bathroom redo, the window has to be replaced. we still have single pan window. it gets cold in the winter. We want to know if anyone knows any reputable company can replace windows on the stucco siding (Portland stucco), prefer wood casement windows. We had put in Loewen windows in hall bath ourselves, I admit we made mistake by cut the rough opening a bit bigger, so had to put some trim around. it is in the court yard, so it not obvious. But we want to get other windows right. any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Stucco installs are a tricky batch and you need to make sure that your contractor is on top of his/her game.

I tend to recommend a cut back in our applications so that the water management details can be specified correctly.

Thank you for your response, windowsonwashington. Can you elaborate about cut back on application?

The shortened version is:

Cut back the stucco to the sheathing layer, install a nailing flange equip window, flash new window, re-apply stucco or suitable trim.

This takes the guesswork out of the leak potential. You can effectively eliminate the potential for any leaks getting into the home, at the window level, from any leaks that might be inside the layer of the stucco/sheathing connection.

Thank you for your answer, Windowsonwashington. how much to cut around the window? My concern is that we can not find anyone to re-patch stucco once it cut. All window guys we talked with would not re patch stucco.

Don't both re-patching.

You will trim it out with Azek or other PVC trim.
