I bought a house last year and when I was buying it, I did not register the fact that on the back side of the house the siding is in contact with the ground/stone patio.
Because of the slope of the back yard, during rainfall about an inch of water pools where the patio and siding meet (the water drains quite quickly once it is done raining). My questions are:
- Is this not up to general code, and if not, what is code?
- If not, what can I do to remedy the situation?
- If I don't do anything about this for another year, what potential water damage issues (if any) will I be risking?
