WE NEED HELP IN REMOVING STUCCO FROM THE EXTERIOR OF OUR 1879 BRICK ITALIANATE. THE PREVIOUS OWNERS HAVE ENCLOSED THE PORCH AND STUCCOED OVER THE BRICK. WE WANT THE ORIGINAL LOOK TO THE FRONT OF OUR HOUSE AND THIS REMUDDLING TO BE GONE BUT WE ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY REMOVING THE STUCCO. WE HAVE TRIED CHIPPING IT OFF BUT THIS SEEMED TO CRACK THE BRICK AND CAUSE THE FACE TO POP OFF. WE HAVE ALSO TRIED MURATIC ACID THIS SOFTENED THE STUCCO AROUND MORTAR JOINTS BUT NOT ON THE FACE OF THE BRICK. ANY SUGGESTION WOULD BE APPRECIATED.THANKS.
