Hi to all,
I’m in the process of replacing a wooden fence and gate along the side of my house. While tearing the old fence down, I noticed that the previous builder used a 2×4 post to anchor one side of the fence to the house. The post was fastened with nails driven through the stucco and into a stud. I plan to replace this rotting post with a pressure treated post. As far as fastening it to the side of the house, there must be a better way than with nails. Also, I’m guessing that some type of sealing/weatherproofing compound should be used when going through the stucco. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have as to how I should approach this.
Thanks in advance.
