I’ve heard of a new paint called something like elastomera or some such name. Is anyone familiar with this new paint? I need to know what the good and bad points are of this paint and if it is useful for exterior stucco wall.

Elastomeric coatings are not new and have been around for years and they are designed for stucco. They are high bulid and very flexible and will bridge hairline cracks.

They are great products but they have to be applied by someone that knows what they are doing as surface preperation is very important and for them to work they have to be applied at the proper thickness.

You should go to a paint store in your area and get some information as what the reccomend and they may send out a rep to look at your house so as you get the right specs. for your particular job.

Hope this helps out.
