closing cavities at the top


Postby mortarboard » Tue Aug 26, 2008 8:36 pm

I'm at the top of my walls and I have been told I must close the cavities along the top. Could anyone tell me what is the best (Building Control) way to do this. I have been told to use slate or soffit board or similar. Also, I'm not sure if whatever I use should be bedded down on mortar or what?

Many thanks
