covering a spot where a light was
I recently added/moved some outside lights around. There was a light over the middle of my garage door. I had that one removed and had two lights added, one on either side of the garage door. The electrician covered up the spot where the one light was originally with a metal plate. I am now getting ready to have my house resided. Is it permissable to cover that metal plate with a piece of siding? or do I have to leave that metal plate exposed? Looks rather ugly, especially when the new siding goes on, but I don't want to cover up something I shouldn't. Thanks for any info!
