Concrete Patio & stairs

I am having 6' width, 7" rise @ 7steps with an approx 12'by12' pad poured at the top. The steps & the patio are directly against the house.
I was planning on tieing into the block of the house at multiple areas using rebar on both pad & stairs, should it be epoxied in to avoid possibly leaking?
I plan on using expansion board between the patio & the wall, should I also do this on the steps? If so how? Not sure if it will look ok with expansion joints showing.

Thanks

Doug

Doug,

I can't contribute much, but your posting has been up a while with no reply and I thought almost no info. is better than nothing.

I don't know if you should tie your patio to your house. However, if you do, you will need to epoxy the anchors and/or rebar into holes in your existing foundation. Simpson makes an appropriate epoxy and it is available at Home Depot.

Hope this is of some use.

Cheers,
Don

Cement stairs

You can build reusable concrete formwork with an adjustable stair system. EZ Stairs makes one and it's very easy to use.
