I've been looking on the 'net and in here for tips regarding applying
stucco. I'm doing an approx 3 x 20 patch over some critter damage repair.
After you've applied each coat, scratch, brown - how cured does it have to
be to apply the next coat? I keep seeing the concept of keeping it moistened
mentioned, but it's not clear if this is always necessary. If I apply and
scratch the scratch coast after dark (I'm in Florida), would that still
require periodic moistening? Obviously I can't be home all day to keep
spraying it down.
Any tips appreciated.
3x20 ... inches? feet? If inches, perhaps a tub of ?DAP latex stucco
repair would work. We used it on stucco on concrete block (Florida),
then painted. Works very nicely. Sanded and unsanded, I believe.
Played with it a bit, using stiff scrub brush, to get the surface
texture to match.
Cover it with plastic and spray it as often as feasible.
The purpose of the moisture is to maximize the material strength. Hurry-up
contractors don't observe this.
One day's cure should be fine between coats. Read the label.
