Pour or buy concrete cap

Want to cap a cinder block wall about 15 feet. Nothing fancy. Does it make sense to buy or pour?

I do not know the specific answer to your question, but maybe get some 26 gage flashing made up, as a cap to go over it, and then secure it, to the top of the wall.

We need more detail... are you capping a foundation inside a garage, or a wall, or something else?

Is there some rule around Home and Garden that new threads have to include as little detail as possible and never any pics then say “here, answer my question?”

So I want to build a structure... how much will it cost?

I hired a guy I found wandering the street. I gave him the full amount up front and now he won’t return my calls. I didn’t get a contract or discuss any detail with him at all. In fact we used sign language and I don’t know sign language. How do I get my money back?
