I am replacing the door jamb and brickmould around my garage doors, and the front face of the garage is a stone veneer. I've removed the existing brickmould, and most of the grout which abutted the moulding is still intact although some will have to be replaced.

What, if anything needs to be done to seal that interface between the grout and the moulding? Can I just install the new moulding against the existing grout and then fill in the spots where some fell out? It seems like I should caulk it, but just thinking that if I install the new moulding up against the existing grout, there won't be much of a gap between the two to receive the caulking.

Thank you in advance for the help!

Grout without any caulk would look best. You could chip off all the old cement and repoint it after the trim is on.
