Kickout Flashing


A complete rookie here, looking for a little advice and info, so please bear with me.

The house I purchased does not have kick flashing where the breezeway meets the house and garage. The house has vinyl siding and it was recommended by the inspector to have that done at some point. I guess my question is, is this something that I can do myself with little risk of making the situation worse.

Originally my thought was, caulk the kick flashing piece to the wall and it would likely need to go under a couple shingles to fit properly? As I look into it a bit more, it sounds like the kick flashing that comes in contact with the vertical wall needs to go under the siding, meaning I would potentially need to cut a groove or a slit for it to fit into? This is the part that I am hesitant about.

Thoughts, recommendations, opinions?

Thanks!

Post a picture.
Caulking is for looks, not to be counted on to keep water out.
Any siding job done right does not need caulking.

Base flashings, including kick-out flashing, is supposed to be attached to the roof only, not to the rising wall/chimney etc. The vertical leg is supposed to be allowed to "float" up/down, in/out with thermal change. The pictures in this tutorial show otherwise.

Thanks, jagans, I didn't even notice that in the pic. Lol, last year I replaced 35 chimney chases-- rake flashing times 9 pieces each side and 1/3 were nailed to the plate (and the roof) behind the T1-11 we never removed, lot of bar work... Gary

Hi Gary. My wife watches those home improvement shows in the evening. Ive worn a path in the rug walking out of the room because I cant watch them do things wrong and not say something.

At least on this forum the pros like you know what they are doing !
