Painting Exterior Stucco House in Florida...Acrylux?

f1668065June 17, 2013

Recently re-stuccoed chimney, first floor front of house & bottom of columns. I plan to re-paint entire exterior but can use some guidance on how to approach existing stucco vs new stucco.

Correct me, if I'm wrong but my initial research tells me I should apply one sealer/primer coat + two separate top coats of paint; each coat should be sprayed + back rolled??

Also, anyone familiar with Acrylux (www.Acrylux.com); a local paint manufacturer here in South Florida mostly known for sloped roof waterproofing systems?

I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts & opinions on them and their products.

I'd also appreciate any helpful input on the following proposal minus prep work, which I received using their house paint:

'-APPLY ONE COAT EMULSABOND ENHANCED 100% ACRYLUX PREMIUM HOUSE PAINT TO EXISTING PAINTED SURFACES. THIS WILL ASSURE QUALITY ADDHESION TO SUBSTRATE.
-APPLY FINAL COAT OF SATIN/FLAT ACRYLUX PREMIUM HOUSE PAINT.'

This sounds to me like skipping a step...kinda like a 'self-priming' exterior paint.

Thank you!

It's been over 60 days and I still have not primed or painted the new stucco. We have had a lot of rain so the stucco guy is on my back again to at least prime the new stucco areas because they may start cracking or holding water in between the old & new coats of stucco.

FWIW, We're starting to enter the most hot & humid time of the year and the height of in hurricane season, which has shifted my focus to retro-fitting new hurricane impact doors & windows.

That said...
How long can I leave new stucco bare without risking harm to my home?
If I prime these new stucco areas now, am I just going to have re-pressure wash (and re-prime?) these areas in Autumn when I paint the entire house?

Thanks
