I have decided to go with 4 inch cap blocks to make a brick ledge. I plan on using brick tabs to help hold the walls together, but I was wondering if I should put cement on the cap blocks inner face to help hold to 2 walls together or some type of construction adhesive. Are the tabs enough? There will only be 3 courses of block to get me close to grade to start the brick. The brick is only going up an additional 24 inches. This is in Nashville, TN.

Brick ledge for what?

Seeing as it's below grade, assuming equal pressure inside and out, there's really no need for wall ties/brick ties. As NJ Brickie mentioned, "Dur-o-wal" would be a better option, if you decide to use anything.

Above grade, I'd actually use galvi brick ties, and I guess NJ and I will have to agree to disagree on that one.............:smile:

Plenty of info.
No need for pictures for such elemantary questions.
Brick ledge for brick or stone veneer, most likely.
He can post a picture, but you're still not going to respond anyways, and there's really no need for you to either I guess..........
