Latex paint doesn't crack??

Good modern latex paint is good, when properly applied. It does
not do as well without some care when applying it over existing oil
paints. Most people I know who have been disappointed with it have
either failed in the prep and application or they used cheap or
improper paint for their use.
I don't mean to indicate that it is better than oil, but it is a
second choice and today it is often the only choice.
Latex semi is about all that is used on concrete block/stucco in FL. I
believe that I have read that oil is better
for wood. I have used oil on exterior wood trim that was badly
alligatored. When scraped to remove loose paint,
cleaned, primed, caulked and dry, oil worked fine.
