How to transition from Concrete / Limestone step to side of home?
I’m installing a patio in my back yard, and there needs to be a step from the living are of the home (sliding doors) to the patio below. The drop is around 16″. The step is going to be made out of concrete with a 2″ Limestone cap for the tread.
I’m running into one problem. There’s currently a 2″ x 12″ piece of Hardie trim that covers the rim joist of my home. And according to Hardie, they will not let you pour concrete directly against it’s trim board.
