Advice on trimming out exterior light fixture where pancake box sticks out too far?
I have a few exterior light fixtures I need to install but the existing pancake boxes are sticking out over an 1″ from the siding.
I attached a few photos I found online that are identical to my situation.
The pancake box is installed in the wall so it cannot be removed.
What would you guys recommend I do here? Are there are deep trim boxes I can mount over the pancake box to water seal it? And then install the light fixture?
Or do I need to custom make one out of a wood block?
Any ideas you guys have would be great.
