    Just installed two 3650mm RSJ. I would like some advice in replacing the two coarses of brickwork above which had fallen out, during the previous demolition work.

    Do put mortar on top of the steel or do I dry lay the first coarse with mortar between each brick.

    Do I use the old brick or would it be easier to use cut medium density blocks.

    Use mortar onto the steel.

    Use bricks as they will be easier to insert.

    We normally keep a few LBC's (with the deep frog) for this purpose, in case any need cutting.
