Stucco and Marvin Essential brickmould question.

last year

Marvin Essential windows were istalled flush to the stucco on my home. Previously there had been chunky cedar wood trim. I told the dealer I intended to stucco to the windows. But when time came to get stucco done, it was pointed out to me that not enough was protruding to stucco to. In trying to figure out what to do next, I discovered that Marvin makes a brickmould that basically snaps in place and would give the added break or barrier that the stucco people need. But when I went to see about backing up and having this done, Marvin's customer service person told me it isn't recommended for stucco! They don't let customers talk directly to Marvin technical support, so I have no idea why. If I could stucco to the brickmould, the look would be clean and simple like the photo. The same dealer installed a back door (Provia) on the garage that has a brickmould, so that just adds to the confused look of things on that side of the house.
