I have two exterior lights that need installed. I have the vinyl siding blocks and am not sure if I can just run romex to the light itself or if I have to have a 3 or 4" round light box installed before I mount the light?
This is an image of what MY siding block looks like.
The family handyman has an image showing just what I want to do but I do not know if that is allowed in new construction and more for a retrofit job? My only guess is they are allowed to do that because their mounting block has a recess for the fixture to attach and may even be water tight?
