WHO SHOULD YOU CALL FOR RETROFIT KICKOUT FLASHINGS?
The best person to call for retrofitting kickout flashing is the professional specializing in the exterior cladding on your home. If you have brick exterior where the kickout flashing is needed, then call the brick mason. If you have vinyl siding, then call the vinyl siding professional. The same is true for stucco, EIFS, composite siding, or any of the other exterior claddings.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION?
If you are building a new home that has a multi-level roof then discuss the kickout flashing installation with your general contractor, roofing subcontractor, and exterior cladding contractor. This should be a team effort on their part to ensure that water does not enter into the walls of the home.
