Mitigate Openings

Mitigating Openings

Storage Box

If you are going to store firewood on the deck, you should use a noncombustible material like metal or fiber cement board for your storage box.

Metal Door

Mitigating this opening with a corrugated metal door stops birds from nesting and blends with the rest of the siding.

Blending with Flagstone

By using flagstone to fill this opening beneath the porch, it blends in seamlessly with the adjacent patio.
