Common Gutter Repairs

Gutters play a vital role in protecting other parts of your home from devastating water damage. The condition of your foundation, soffits and fascia, driveway, sidewalks, plants and landscaping will all be affected for better or worse. That’s why when your gutters don’t perform properly, it’s important to take care of gutter repair swiftly and professionally.  If you see a drip, it is important to fix the problem before water starts to damage wood or landscaping. The following common repairs will keep gutters working effectively.

Broken Down Spout

Patching a hole - If we find a small hole in a gutter and the remainder of your gutter system doesn’t require replacement, we can patch the hole. For a larger hole, we will clean the surface around the hole, cover it with a large piece of metal flashing and seal the flashing.

Fixing leaky joints - Over time, the joint connecting two pieces of guttering or at a corner can loosen and cause sealants to crack. In this case, gutter repair is very similar to the method used to repair a hole. The adjoining metal sections are cleaned, sealed and glued.

 

 Broken Gutter

Adjusting sagging gutters- Older-style gutters may have been attached using a spike-and-ferrule system, but spikes can loosen and pull out, causing the gutter to sag and overflow. We can replace spikes and adjust the gutter so that there is a slight peak in the middle, which causes water to move quickly into downspouts.
