Our oven is finished and plan to paint the stucco tomorrow as it looks like there are only two warm days left to complete the process. My question is, will the paint hold up to the higher temperatures at the front of the oven? We won’t be painting the fire brick but will paint the stucco surrounding the fire brick on the front.
Sorry for the delay in replying; I’ve been off the forums for a few days.
The paint on the stucco should hold up, even though there are higher temperatures radiating out the front of the oven. Your stucco should all be over insulation, give or take a half inch. The hotter temperatures concentrate nearer the rear of the cavity.
