Today my roof was completed and I was asked to inspect it. On first inspection I noticed the metal piece (see pic). I told the roofer that it looked horrible and that I didn't like it. He said it was the only way it could be done with it being up to code. I know that with it being brick it is more difficult, but this looks horrible. Is this true and does anyone have any suggestions to make it look better?

That is a counter flashing into brick. Most roofers handle this detail pretty similar to the way yours is done. I myself would have used a grinder and cut a straight line on the diagonal into the brick, installed copper step flashing and copper counter flashing into the brick. The same way a chimney flashing would be installed. http://www.roofinglongisland.com

This is one of a few different ways to install flashing.
While it may not be the prettiest, it is certainly effective.
I would advise applying a coat of primer and paint in the color you prefer, to help hide its unsightliness.

Surprised he didn't paint it. Did he caulk the top of it?
