Have You Actually Seen Chimney Kickout Flashing In The Field?

The text has an article on the importance of Chimney Kickout Flashing.

When I searched Google Images, I didn’t see a single result that shows kickout flashing used on a chimney.

Have any of you seen kickout flashing in use on a chimney?

Rarely ever see them. I live in a community of essentially tract houses built in the 60s. Practically every house has a 2 level roof in the front, no kickouts. In fact if they had kickout flashing it would divert a torrent of water right over the entry door. No thanks. I would only recommend if it looked like it would actually benefit the home, its not always needed or a good idea.

One side of the chimney had kick out flashing I didn’t photograph it, it was not a defect. The other side of the chimney had a bent up kick out flashing. This was from an inspection last week.


Or the unseen damage like this one;


The siding material was heavily damaged from where that kick out flashing was bent down all the way to the ground. Nice photograph Marcel.

Run into kick-out diverters every now and then.


Hope you didn’t get cut. LOL!

Chimney flashing, of any type, is typically not installed in this area. This chimney kickout flashing was unusual, that’s why I remembered it.

John Paul, does your area experience much rain or snow?

Hi Saman,
No, it is a desert climate. The mountains have double to triple the annual city rainfall, depending on the altitude.
