Here is an answer to the question of Should I paint or side my house before I build a deck?

If you are going to have your house sided, put the siding on first and box around where the ledger board will be located.

If the deck will be installed first, leave enough room between where the railing posts and any staircase meet the house so the siding can easily be installed.

If you are painting or staining the house, build the deck first and paint or stain last.

A good painter will have to drop clothes and take the necessary precautions to do a professional and clean job.

On the other hand, if you don’t mind the likelihood of getting the new paint job dirty in some spots and having to touch it up then you can paint first.
