I have a small portion of eastrough that goes around the corner of the roof and just stops at about 3 or 4 feet. It has come out of the wall 3 times now. I don't think it really is all that important as the roof is pitched in two directions and this portion of the eaves really does not collect water and I figure it was just cosmetic to go around the corner of the roof. Having said that it just does not stay in the brick. From everyone I talk to it seems they just get pushed in and somehow stay? So what is the solution for a small section that keeps coming away? Can I just add a glob of silicone next time I put it back in to hold it?

A picture might help. If I'm following you, adding an anchor into the hole and reattaching would solve it. Silicon would probably work as well. Even a few tooth picks in the hole would make the screw tighter in the brick.
