Florida Stucco Repaint, What type of Product is best?

We are going to be re-painting the exterior of our stucco over block home, built in 2005 in the Orlando Florida area.

We had injection foam insulation installed, and the holes from such patched. I plan on spot-priming the places where the holes were patched and textured, and then repainting the entire outside of the house.

We have never had an issue with water intrusion that I am aware of, however I would like to provide the best protection of it in the future.

I have been evaluating a few products, and would love any thoughts or comments.

  • SW Loxon XP
  • Valspar Duramax Elastomeric Coating
  • SW Sherlastic
I am currently planning on rolling on the entire house, yeah I may regret that one, with two coats of whatever we decide to go with.

I do plan on walking into my local SW store and simply asking them what to do.

We had another suggestion for going with a local product, Flex-Bon, however I can't find much information about it. http://www.flexbon.com/

Any ideas, thoughts, or comments would be appreciated!

After reading the material data sheets,I would go with the local Flex-Bon, it is 100% acrylic and formulated for you're specific area.

SW Sherlastic. IMO, hands down would be the way to go. But if your wanting to go the local paint CO then this product as per your post link Raincheck Satin High Build Elastomeric

Just remember, with all elastomeric products, box all your product together as far as possible. Keep stipple pattern the same grade, ( up or down ) Never stop for the day in the middle of a wall or gable.

So I see no one recommended the Loxon XP product....is there a reason why?

From what I read, sherlastic is a lower grade product than the Loxon...however am I mis-understanding this?

I am not stuck on going with a local outfit, especially since I am new to the area and haven't been able to feel everyone out yet.

Loxon Xp is a great product and waterproofer, do you mean Sherlatic? Or Shercrete? I'm very familiar with SW Shercreate that is also a great product and its a flexible acrylic masonry flexible waterproofer that can be tinted to practically any color its used on vertical and horizontal surfaces including walking surfaces. Loxon XP is an enhanced version of Loxon, as it does not need a primer. You can read about SW Shercrete on our website www.kelloggspainting.com , on our masonry coatings page.
