Removing Dryvit Cement Adhesive

    I am in the process of helping a client remediate some inappropriate work on a building clad in historic stucco. A contractor had applied EIFS over the stucco to repair it using Dryvit Prims Dry Cement Adhesive Base Coat. The EIFS was fairly easy to remove levanting behind this adhesive in dabs on the exterior. We are thinking of using an organic solvent to see if it loosens it enough that it can be peeled off. Has anyone dealt with something like this before? I plan on basing our removal of this off of the GSA Procedure Code 112886S "Removing Adhesives from Marble" found at Technical Documents
