Good Morning !!!
A little different question. I had a deck attached to my house and over the years the flashing failed and cause a considerable amount of rot. I removed the deck, repaired the rot, and then resided the houe with ship lapped verticle siding (8″ rough cedar). I now want to attach the deck again but am not willing to cut into the cedar. Is there a “Proper” way of attaching the deck to the house by attaching the leger board over the siding? Putting stand-offs between the siding and the leger so that water can run down between?
