I recently installed a patio with 8" X 16" pavers. I brought the level of the patio to the bottom of the sill of the sliding patio door so you do not have to step down to the patio. When intalling the pavers I cut the siding (cedar plank)to fit the pavers up to the concrete slab of the house. There is about an inch clearance between the pavers and the bottom of the siding. Is this too close to the siding? Before installing the patio the distance from the sill of the patio door to the ground was approximately 6-8". The patio is slopped approximately 2" over 10 feet away from the house to drain any water away from the house. I was told that the distance from the patio pavers to the siding might be too close (not within code??) Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
