roof to wall flashing.

Doesn't that give you a pin hole in the corner?

I tear things down and build them up.

The kickout flashing's purpose is to kickout water. In your case it will be at the end of the run. I guess you could seal it. If you didn't have a kickout it would end where you made the cut. I don't see any problems, but a real roofer may come along shortly. I am just a DIY person.

To avoid the "pin-hole" leak potential, I take 2 pieces of step flashings, cut the opposite miter angle on the bottom piece, apply a slight bead of sealant, then sandwich the 2nd piece of step flashing on top of the 1st one with the exact opposite angle of the miter cut.

Or, you could purchase a "kick-out" flashing from a company who makes them.

Here is one link.



P.S. Galvanized nails are constantly used to install the aluminum step flashings, aka baby tins. The step flashings are typically nailed into the side wall portion of the flashing.
