Re: Painting Stucco with Power Roller
You do not want to roll stucco, you'll end up with a gloppy looking mess.
Spraying gets the material onto the surface, the point of back-rolling is to force the paint down into all the nooks and crannies, but even that isn't necessary if you know how to apply the paint. The key is to spray in multiple directions. The perfect analogy would be if you were to paint a door. If you only stand on one side of the door, then you won't get the side, top, bottom edges or the back of the door, you have to come at the door from multiple angles and directions. Spraying a textured surface, such as stucco, is no different, you need to spray it at multiple attack angles so as to coat all sides of each bump of texture.
You will likely find that by using this technique, you will not need to back-roll. I would also recommend watching some youtube videos on the subject, see how other pros are doing it.
