Kick Out Flashing

Kickout flashings are used where a lower roofline terminates against a vertical wall. The kickout is installed above the rain gutter and/or drip edge flashing where the roof meets a vertical wall. It kicks out rain water and diverts it away from the lower wall. Without a kickout flashing, the water misses the gutter and runs in behind the siding and gets trapped inside the wall. Missing, or incorrectly installing, kickout flashings is often the source of major structural, mold, and rot damage.
