Stucco is an exterior covering that is made by blending sand with powdered lime or cement. Water is added to the mixture until it reaches mortar-like consistency. After finishing, you get a rough-textured appearance on the surface. Popcorn surface is hard, flexible, waterproof, and gives a stylish architectural look to your house.
In Toronto, Stucco is most commonly used as an exterior covering for the past 15 years. Stucco is generally applied by hand over metal wire or lath, which helps it to stick to the surface firmly. Typically, popcorn surface lasts for years, but might get dirty and cracked easily when not maintained.
