Default Re: Stucco-ing

I think I am going to paint my stucco. I have been told by a few builders that stucco isn't the best material to use in the area anyway, so I am sure I will benifit from a coat of paint as a moisture barrier.

That being said, should I cure my oven before I paint? I am guessing so, but if not, how long do I let the stucco cure before I paint it?

Thanks for your help!

However....If you add 2 cups of Type S lime to each bag, then you DO have a superb stucco material. That is, in fact, what I used to stucco my house.

28 days and it needs to be dry. Just remember that painted once means repainting forever. Better to use integral color and be done with it forever.

As the outside of the oven tends to get dirty with bits of soot falling on it etc. I believe it is easier to repaint the thing every year. It is not that big that it is an arduous task. Mixing colour into the stucco/render has some problems in that you won't get good intensity of colour because the greyness of the cement interferes with the resulting colour and is very hard to rematch. With paint over the top, you just pull out the same tin or change it if you're sick of the original colour. Don't paint the outside until you have done about 10 decent cooking fires to ensure that there is no moisture still trapped inside.
