Decking & DPC

I am looking to fit some decking onto a patio base, however I am not sure if it will be too high, the way I wish to do it.

Basically I want to run the decking up to the patio doors for the flush look, sitting just above the cill, if I do this then the decking will be ever so slightly above the damp proof course of the rest of the house where the wall is rendered. I have attached an image of what I am trying to describe.

So can I install the decking as show? Will there be any issues? The decking won't be fixed to the house and a gap would be left between board and wall.
