I've been wondering what's on the outside of the front of my house. Some local guys have called it stucco, but it's actually some soft, white, styrofoamy material. Some has come off on the bottom edge at two or three corners, and one of the kids put a round dent in it over the driveway. I thought stucco was more of a plastery type of material.
My question, should anyone recognize what I'm talking about, is , is there any special preparation or priming I'll need to accomplish before I repaint this exterior material? Also, how can I "re-inflate" the dent? Lastly, how do I repair the corners that have chipped off?
I'm not painting anytime soon (My wife actually likes the current color), but just for discussion, I'd like to learn something.
