Missing kickout flashing
I don’t have kickout flashing on any of my wall/roof intersections. In fact, I’ve never actually seen a house in my area that has kickout flashing. My house does have the last (or I guess the first) piece of step flashing sticking out in front of the siding. The area I’m most concerned about has a downspout emptying just above the wall. I think I should extend it further so it doesn’t dump right along the wall.
After it rained I noticed the brick skirt underneath the siding was wet. Does it look like that is from water getting behind the siding? Or could that be water running over top the siding and wetting the brick that way? Either way I guess the proper thing to do is install kickout flashing and extend the downspout, but if that much water is in fact getting behind the wall, I’d like to take care of it sooner rather than later. My siding is a vinyl cedar shake. It’s a lot thicker and less flexible than standard vinyl siding. Anyone know if one of those vinyl siding tools will work on this stuff?
I also have a metal roof over a porch with a roof/wall intersection on both sides. They just caulked the joint between the siding and roof. Please see the attached picture. How is that area normally flashed?
