How To Grind Stucco For Exterior Casing?


I had to grind stucco around a door 1/4 down and 2 and 1/2 wide so exterior casing (3 1/2 hardy board) can lie flat above stucco and door frame. Both 7” concrete grinder wheel and tried to use in same way how you would grind steel. Like little angled holding grinder and grinding with edge or wheel. Didn’t work wheel. Spend like 3 hours and didn’t go deep enough and made so much dust that was worried someone will call police at me. What is right way? I found at internet diamond wheel, evidently in this case small one, but holding it flat against stucco not at an angle?

Sounds like the door should have been ordered with 1/4" wider jamb. I'd much rather add that much to the jamb with a little filler trim piece than grind all that stucco down.
If you were using thicker trim, I'd say to use a table saw to remove that much from the back of the trim where it meets the stucco, kind of a fat "L" shape.
But again, no way I'd grind that much out of the stucco.

I will do so. I thought to do so but homeowner had “better” idea.

Best case scenario is to have the stucco return to the jamb. We try to not have trim on the outer part of the jamb because it usually is a maintenance nightmare and also looks better.
