im putting in a patio. it is located along the back of a house the bricks go right up against the foundation. what do i have to keep in mind when putting pavers around foundation and siding, do the pavers have a certain amount of space from the siding.

If you are in an area where the frost is pretty severe like us in Maine, I recommend you leave a small gap (1" or less) that you can fill and hand pack. I say this because the patio is going to move independent from the house from the frost. How the water ruyns in the area around the patio should be considered. The more the water the more likely frost will effect the patio. Some may disagree because they don't want to see any gaps, but thats how I have done it personally.

ok here isthe scenerio,,,,,The housefaces west the pool is in the back and sits on the north half of the yard about 11 feet from the house. (weird location) the whole area between the pool and the house is going to be patioabout 28 ft long by 11 feet. the patio wil run along the back of the houseup against the house as well. so it runs 28 feet northand south. a wood deck is on the south end of the deck and the customer wants the water to flow towards te north and out into the lawn on the north ide of the house. i want to know how much space should there be from the pati surface and the siding and how much space should there be between th foundaton and pavers.
