How do you mount an exterior light fixture on siding with a rainscreen?
I have just finished adding a 3/8″ rainscreen (Cor-a-Vent strips) to a small building I’m working on. I used zip sheathing and I have not yet added the siding. The rainscreen gap is 3/8″ and the siding is .315″ (LP smartside) for a combined depth of about .69″.
I want to add a porch light by the door. The porch light requires a 4″ round electrical box. How would you integrate an electrical box to the zip sheathing so that the box is flush with the siding?
Thanks for reading!
