Step up on deck
I am refinishing my deck with composite decking finally. The deck is on top of a sunroom, and opens out of the house flush with a sliding glass door. It is currently configured with a 3.5 foot level field, and then there is a 4" step up - it's kind of like a little recess in the level of the deck floor right around the door. This was to try and build in some slope for drainage. I would like to shorten the distance from door to step up and am curious what the recommended minimum distance should be from door to step? This is just for ease in laying boards so I don't have to rip a 20' board.
Thanks for any ideas.
