Kickout Flashing -How they work

Kickout flashing’s are normally found where a roof-to-wall transition ends at the bottom edge of the roof.  They are generally constructed of a regular section of metal angle flashing.  Most often, they are cut into the bottom edge of the actual angle flashing.

This picture of a kickout flashing is a “purchased” type. It includes a built in splash guard as well. Regardless of the style you can see how the kickout is behind the lowest portion of the wall flashing.  This forces water in front of the kickout and into the gutters.
