I had a patio door installled and the installers left the stucco around the frame in poor shape. Eventually i would like to redo this but my problem is the stucco cracking under the frame of the door. We have a deck just outside that door and sometimes during a good rain water doesnt filter through the seams in the deck and i believe it got under the door. The particle board our lino is on is falling apart like dust next to the door. Any fixes to this issue? Does that whole door need to come out again? Or can i temporarily put some kind of caulking material until i fix the stucco myself? I am also going to give a bit more space for water to flow through the deck so it wont pool up. Thanks for you help

You need a professional to re-install the door. The sooner - the better. From what you describe, you are flirting with the possibility of structural damage from rot, not just the damaged underlayment.
