Exterior backplate(?) for wall fixture - what's it called?
We have a cedar sided house and need to hang some wall entrance fixtures. There is a square separate piece currently attached to the house and then the light attaches on top of this plate. It is there to offset the angle of the cedar board so the light will hang level.
The current plate is not wide enough and the back of the new light hangs off the edges a bit. Does anyone know what this backplate on the house is called? I have been searching for it online and cannot find it.
Is there another solution to this problem?
