Looking at how they attach wooden lattice patio covers around here (Thousand 
Oaks, in Southern California), the typical scheme (as shown on the drawing from 
the building department) is a 2x8 lag bolted through the stucco into the studs 
or horizontal beams behind it. (The patio cover is often at the height of the 
lintel beam across the top of doors/windows).  The patio covers have to be able 
to take live loads of people escaping through second story windows above the 

As you say, you put flashing or silicone sealer above the beam to keep water 
from going behind the ledger board.  You could remove the stucco first, but 
almost everyone just puts the assembly flat on the stucco surface.
