Attaching a deck to my house

I am getting ready to put a deck on my house and am wondering where to attach it. I have been told that going into cement is better, but I would hate to jack up my foundation. My neighbor attached one by cutting the batten board siding off the lower part and going into the frame, but I hear those can leak.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Roy,

They leak if...

...if you don't flash the ledger board, or the board where he made the attachment.
