Q: The best method for painting stucco

A: Q: When painting stucco, is it better to spray and back-roll, or roll on?

— Ray, San Jose, California

Steve says: Really it's just a judgment call, but if it were me and it was a big job, I'd probably spray and back-roll. If it was a small job, I would just roll on the paint. Rolling on stucco goes very quickly. Use a thick roller that will hold a lot of paint, better enabling the paint to work its way into the uneven texture of the stucco.
