sealing around kickout flashing


I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to get the house wrap around the kickout flashing. Before I start siding, I need to get this resolved. We had wind driven rain last week so it was a good opportunity to see where I need to spend some extra time. Any ideas are always appreciated.

Not sure what you mean by "Getting the house wrap around the kickout flashing"?
On siding areas where there is the opportunity for snow and ice build up (like a kick-out flashing area), lower dormer sidewall, etc..., you should use water and Ice membrane.

It's the first piece of flashing in a roof to wall transition. It prevents runoff from the roof from draining behind the siding.

Thanks Atlantic, What I was did was cut a slit in the house wrap and dropped it over the kickout flashing. It didn't really give me a water tight seal. I'm going to use rubber membrane to give me a better seal then I don't need to be so precise with the house wrap.
