slate installation


If I am installing slate on the outside of the front door step up to the aluminum threshold, is it better to grout the space between the slate and aluminum threshold or should I caulk it? The door is protected and not subjected to weather.

Grout will crack 10 minutes after you've done it. Caulk it.
