RE: Arizona Masonry

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
On my jobs in the Seattle area (zone 3--at least for now) I usually grout
all cells. Contractors tell me it's easier and cheaper than partial
grouting. The only time I wouldn't do it is if I really need to reduce the
wall weight or improve the insulation value of the wall.

Hello all
Thank you to everyone who responded regarding the specialty precast.
For those familiar with masonry construction in Arizona, what is the local
construction community used to seeing; full or partial grouting?
In zone 4 country virtually all masonry construction is fully grouted.
