Is Behr paint any good for Stucco

I live in Northern California about 3 miles from the ocean, so we get a lot of fog and moist air. It's time to paint my stucco home again. In the past I have used Kelly Moore Acry-Shield Exterior Flat Paint. I have been happy with it. I used to get it at a discounted price. Now I be paying regular price. I don't mind paying for quality products but I see Behr paint at Home Depot is around $ 36 a gallon. Any opinions on Behr quality or a another good choice for stucco. Or should I just stay with the Kelly Moore product.

Well, I'll gaurantee no one will recommend Behr (though I've never had any issues with it). Kelly Moore is a more regional brand so some may have no experience with it.

Laying odds, you'll probably see Benjamin Moore (Kelly's brother?) and Sherwin-Williams as good choices.

Are you using just regular exterior paint? Around here, the best jobs are done with an elastomeric paint which helps waterproof, bridge hairline cracks, expands and contracts with the substrate, etc. I'm told it can easily go 10 yrs even out here in the desert.

I've not used enough Behr to comment on it's suitability although it doesn't have a great reputation. That said, most any exterior latex paint will work on stucco, the better ones will last longer.

I've never used Behr paint and never will simply because of all the horror stories I've read about it being on forums like this.

Generally speaking, better products and advice are available in paint stores than paint departments.
