Here is a brief 2 page article which explains; What are the different types of Stucco, and how they are applied. In my experience, there is hard coat stucco, and synthetic stucco. If there is synthetic stucco on a home, then some Relocation Companies will not allow the home to become part of their "Buy Back" Program, if the company decides to transfer the employee to another area. Synthecic stucco is not a major issue if it is located where the elements, rain, cannot reach it. The problem with synthetic stucco is it is porous and the wood behind the stucco can get wet and will not dry out immediately, therefor causing degredation of the wood.
