I think it would be appropriate to call the bottom edge of the flashing a flange. However, if I were trying to communicate to a client what the thingie-that-should-be-exposed was I would simply say the bottom edge of the flashing. I'm pretty sure that most people these days wouldn't know what a flange was if one bit them on the ass. Bottom edge? That's a simple concept.

Whenever possible and/or helpful, I'll include an image from my library next to the picture I took of the defect. It allows me to type fewer words and communicate more effectively. For this case, if I were going to include the image below in my report with the pic Robert took, I would put a note on it saying "details similar for roof vent".

My father taught me to call a vent flashing like the one Cary shows in the post above a "bib flashing." I suppose because it literally resembles a bib. In the case of a wide flange running around the bottom of a roof vent, I'd probably refer to it as either a flange or a bib, though probably not a bib flashing because it's integral to the vent body and isn't fitted around it.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
