Is the texture important for stucco or could it be smooth?

    The jagged texture of a stucco finish occurs mainly because of its composition. Modern stucco is made from sand, Portland cement, lime and water. Stucco must be reinforced with a wire or plastic mesh in order to strengthen the coat. As the stucco is troweled onto the mesh, it hardens and its characteristic pockets of roughness appear on the surface. The surface texture is not what allows stucco to be a good siding material, but to smooth out all the rough areas would be painstaking and wouldn’t add much benefit.
