In heavy rains, many homes get water that enters their home in places where there isn’t enough protection. To have a properly waterproof home, a number of different factors play a role, and if one of them fails, you can end up with water damage which can prove to be very costly.
Wherever you have an intersection between your roof and a wall, there is a vulnerable spot where water can enter. To prevent this, kickout flashing is installed to push the water out and away from the wall, but the problem is that some homeowners might not realize how essential kickout flashing is, and therefore remove it. Kickout flashing might look like it is out of place or damaged, when in reality it is installed correctly.
If you find that you are missing kickout flashing you should get it reinstalled as soon as possible to prevent water from leaking into your home.
