I want to build a concrete slab (upon which a deck will be build later) at the foot of a brick wall (by foot I don't mean the foundation foot, I just mean where the brick meets the grade level). I hear that you can't make concrete and brick stick together. How do I deal with it? Do I leave a gap? What about water in that gap? Do I put some flashing?
Edit: There are also some practices about joints:
This means have a joint but seal it, basically. What do you think?
Note that I'll have a slight slope from the wall. I'm still puzzled what to do.
