re: Frozen Masonry

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


They built the wall, tenting was blown off overnight, very cold, special inspector said the walls were frozen.  I have not been to the job yet, but per the inspector, the mortar is discolored, flaking, and there a gaps between the CMU and head joint mortar.

Can anyone direct me to a good reference on repairs for frozen CMU.

Can you give us a little more information?  I assume it wasn't frozen after completion, but was frozen either soon after being laid (frozen mortar) or soon after grouting (frozen, uh, grout).
