Around the outside of the house, the concrete base is covered with a layer of styrofoam and a layer of this flexible stucco material. I'm not really sure what exactly is. This sheet looks like stucco with a plastic mesh through it (see images).

I'm trying to fix the damaged parts and I would like to use the same materials or something similar which would be very close to what it already is.

What you have is a system called EIFS for short. Here is a link to get to the care and repair of this type of finish.

It has the answer in there, I figured to have the whole maintenance and repair manual might be handy. On top of that I have never tried to get a PDF on Stack. I will try to abbreviate it –  Jack Jun 16 at 12:26
