RE: Masonry in Las Vegas Fully Grouted or Partially Grouted

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
That reinforces what I just heard from a friend at NCMA. California and most of Nevada is almost exclusively fully grouted. Oregon and Washington is more mixed between fully grouted and partially grouted. Everywhere else, the tendency is for partially grouted unless there is a definitive reason to require fully grouted. I like to use what is standard in a given industry if possible.

Harold,

My experience has been that fully grouted walls are the standard in Las
Vegas.

What is the tendency for reinforced CMU walls in the Las Vegas area?

I know in California, the convention is to use fully grouted reinforced
CMU
walls.  In most other areas of the US, the convention is to use
partially
grouted reinforced CMU walls.

What is the convention in the Las Vegas area for reinforced CMU walls?
Fully grouted or partially grouted?

Regards,
Harold Sprague
