Latex paints are quicker to apply. One full coat should be done followed by another full coat in 3-4 hours. It is different with elastomeric paints. The paint manufacturers recommend that the initial coat should be sprayed on followed by backrolling to press the paint into the material. This should be followed by another sprayed coat, which is then brushed to give the stucco the desired look. It is also recommended to apply the paint 75-100 sq. ft. per gallon. Remember that cheap is expensive. If you are looking for a job that will come out well and last for years, go for high-quality paints even if they are pricier.
