Have you ever seen a home that seemed as if it was coated with clay or cement?

This was probably stucco siding. It is a very old building material that first became popular among the Greek nations around 1,000 years ago. It is the oldest type of siding material available, but it is still a very effective option for different types of homes. And the stucco styles are a lot more modern than they were in the Greek times!
