Default Prep of Elastromric on Stucco

I have never painted stucco and now bidding 2 jobs for it.
I need some prep advice for one of them. It has Valspar Duramax Elastrometric on it it is a flat finish and the stucco is kind of flat.
What kind of prep do I need besides cleaning.

Just clean it... Personally, I would thin it just a bit, since its more of a smooth stucco. Some would advise against that though. I guess it depends on he elasto. Some of it is thick as honey, some isnt..

Use at least an 1" roller, if not heavier.

It goes on thick, so it will take more material than you think.

I pressure wash stucco most of the time, it holds dirt pretty well. Sometimes a good wash with a hose and maybe a scrub brush will be enough. If the elasto is any good it will be thick, it has to be to do its job and you will need two coats. Yup rolling elasto sucks. I have a job coming up that I have to roll a fairly large amount of and am not looking forward to it.

Used to paint those houses all the time back in the 90's. Would spray on the elastomeric if im not mistaken. Trying to brush and roll on stucco is a nightmare. Just use a bigger tip.

I have rolled out a few walls with elasto with no problem. If you spray, you need a powerful pump... Either that, or you need to thin it down even more, which you arent supposed to do, but many painters do. I remember Sherwins Elasto was quite a bit thinner than Kelly Moores, which is what we used. That Valpsar is probably on the thinner side, but I've never used it....
