curing period for stucco???
I want to know what is the curing period for 3 coats system stucco between coats.Our contractor wants to apply the brown coat after 3 days of puting the scratch coat. Is this right?
Thank you,

I'm not sure and I will be interested to know the definitive answer. However, I'm going to hazard a guess that there is a chemical bond that is created between the three coats that depends on the coats curing together.

Thatís fine, letting each layer cure independently is key.

OK so my guess was wrong... glad someone else chimed in!
