Critical Areas - Roof/Wall Intersections

kickout01Roof/wall intersections can be a major area for water infiltration on a building. The industry has standards for kickouts or diverter flashing to be installed at these areas.
kickout02At a minimum, the inspector must take readings directly under the kickout, at the halfway point down the wall under the kickout, and at the floorline or foundation of the wall under the kickout. It may be necessary due to either high moisture readings or on a higher than average wall for the inspector to take additional readings in the general area.
