Ask the Experts | Ask the Door Guys | Grouting a Frame in Masonry Construction

Question:

What are the benefits and setbacks of grouting a door frame in masonry construction?

 

Answer:

If grouting is done properly it will not cause any issues with the frame but rather improve the sound deadening qualities. Unfortunately, thin pumpable slurry is often used and the excess water in it causes rust. Grout should always be hand troweled, never pumped.
