Removing stucco cement from brick
Hi there. . . So we are halfway through removing a stucco facing from our brick house. The brick underneath is in fine shape, or at least it is until our workers start chiseling away at the cement that held the stucco up.
Does anyone have any ideas on ways we might soften the cement so as to avoid damaging the brick face?
I've seen muriatic acid mentioned elsewhere, but also that it might discolor or weaken brick.
