Masonry Mortars & Grouts
Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Masonry mortars and grouts are the "glue" of the masonry wall system. Too often, masons underestimate the importance of mortars and grouts in the masonry system. This seminar will show just how important these components are as it pertains to quality masonry design, detail and construction.
