You will need to remove the gutter, and poke into the hole to see if there is lots of deterioration. If there is not, repair it , but if there is, remove all the damaged area.
Thank you for the quick reply!
So the stucco would need to be repaired and a kickout flashing installed on top?
Is it possible to gauge the extent of the damage without removing the stucco? The exposed wood does not look rotten?
Is this crack a result of damage from water penetration, or something unrelated?
