    Hi,
    Ive had to remove my old plaster on a first floor wall so that I can Aquaboard it ready for the bathroom fitter in a couple of weeks. Having removed the plasterboard around the window it seems that when the new UPVC windows were added a bridging lintel was not, therefore I have a gap between the outer brickwork and the inner blockwork. Whats the best way to seal this before boarding? IMG_7632.jpg IMG_7631.jpg

    BobbyBrown, good evening.

    Not easy to see, but is that a bead insulation in the cavity? or bits of the cavity??

    Ken.

    Previous occupants had double glazing fitted and cavity wall insulation pumped in.
    There’s a lintel above the inner block work but the outer brick course stops at the height of the new windows as the roof slopes past.
    I was thinking of framing out the window area with battens and fixing plasterboard to that. 17106B56-290F-4BD8-BD70-934A72D3A0BC.jpeg AADA99EB-8BB1-4995-BD7C-44F53718F86A.jpeg
