I think "grout fill" is more of a term for the process and not the material.I don't know...that is kinda what I am asking. When googling it seems "grout fill" is supposed to be a certain type of grout. Certainly if I am allowed to use something else that is what I am after. Only thing I can gather is that grout fill is designed to be soupier and small aggregate.
Also, I can't do any fill until inspector looks at finished block wall with rebar in place.
What you need is a mason to answer this for you. We had one but he hasn't been on lately. (Racerone)I appreciate the calm response.
The detail is right out of my plans. I am not expanding my question for this thread. I just need to know what to buy off the shelf...I have no interest in custom mixing anything.
I assumed that "grout fill" was some specific mixture that needed to be used and was confused when I found it so hard to come by. This is what prompted me to ask if there was some other bagged material that is typically substituted that I needed to know about.
I did email my architect earlier today asking about the cores to be filled, no response yet. I was assuming it needed to be all of them.
I still have one inspection to go before I am allowed to fill the cores, if I had not gotten an answer by then I planed to ask the inspector if I was OK to fill the cores with "x". I just haven't decided what "x" is yet.
Who are you? Your not the OP.I dont get intimidated. I just havent found any of these supply houses everyone keeps telling me to go to that will sell to me. Hell I am needing to source block and rebar too.
Try these guys if there near you....if not ask them who is near you with the products you need.Maybe I just don't know what to search for. I live in Jacksonville FL. If anyone could point me at the right place to go for CMU or rebar it would be extremely helpful.
I'm sure they can tell you somebody that's close to you.... Jacksonville seems like a decent size city. I looked up some other concrete delivery places in your area but didn't see much on there web sites. Could be just bad web sites.Thanks for that. They have everything I need including core fill. I tried to send them an email but it came back as undeliverable lol.
I will try calling them Monday. The closest location is 2 hours away though so not too hopeful they will deliver for a small project.
I suppose that's your password to your bank account too so watch out for the hackers. 3onthetree maybe one of them!Maybe not needed but wouldn't hurt if I overkilled it. Still no response from structural, sigh...but I may have found a source for the fill. I didn't realize I had a White Cap local, I was trying to order it and have it shipped which was extreme price...but if I can pick it up that's better. Quickrete themselves responded to my inquiry with the local White Cap office info.
As for the name, no, Paul is the middle.
