Stucco texture changes


We have a 30 year old home...has very rough stucco texture that we want to change or completely remove or put base construction to add artificial stone to compliment our brick on home. House was built in 1977-78...asbestos possibilty. How do we test for this...can you add artificial stone directly over the existing stucco surface in anyway .

How you proceed will depend on the construction you have under the stucco and the type of stone you choose. Best to call in some contractors who specialize in artificial stone and also contact the manufacturers directly with their requirements.
