My deck stringers are covered by composite siding that encloses my steps. This makes snow & debris removal more difficult. Is there a way to cut the siding to step level so I will still have the finished look and open staircase?
If the composite material is solid you can cut it like a stringer and put it back on, but if it is honeycombed you will have an unsightly edge. If it is just cosmetic you could remove it completely. Hope this gives you some food for thought.
