Default Root after manual update?

So I finally found some time for my unlocked and rooted nexus 4. Right now it is on 4.3 stock and I want to update to 4.4.2. Now the question which I couldn't find an answer on Google: Do I loose root after manual update? I've seen some videos on that, but some say that you need stock recovery (I have TWRP), but nothing about root.
Also, I'd install Franco kernel after that.
Help and possible tutorial would be appreciated, I'm still kinda new to android.

You can have a stock experience by installing the Experience ROM in the development thread.

Make sure you are running the latest TWRP before trying to flash a 4.4 ROM.

Yes, always when you flash another stock Rom, you will lose root.
But it's a matter of seconds to reroot after flashing latest supersu.zip through TWRP.
