25 YO Deck Rehab

Father house, deck has lasted 25 years, the siding hasn't. His/my plan is to have the siding cut in a horizontal line above the rot, reflash, install z flashing, replace siding below, reinstall deck (fixing various other issues). Maybe 1-2 " of "new" siding will be visible after deck boards are reinstalled. Deck needs to go next to siding otherwise junk will accumulate in gap and below. So what is the best way to prevent siding from being compromised again?

I'd cut the siding, install flashing and then pressure treated 1x instead of more siding.

Hadn't thought of that, since it's mostly hidden, aesthetics wouldn't be too much of a concern. However, there still is the issue of debris being caught between the two, and even pressure treated isn't meant to be in constant contact w/moisture. I'd still need to figure out some way to minimize water from getting down between there I would think.

He's against using Hardie board or an equivalent.
