Here is a list of some typical gutter repairs:
1. The most common gutter repairs we see are sagging gutters. Many older gutters are held in place by long nails or spikes. When these spikes come out the gutter is no longer supported. The way to repair a sagging gutters is to replace the spikes with long screws or to add new brackets. Hopefully no wood has been damaged that may need to be repaired too.
2. The downspouts are another area often in need of gutter repair. If debris gets stuck in the downspout and freezes it can split the seam of the downspout. The downspout and elbow may need to be replaced. The bracket that holds the downspout to the home will often come loose and will need to be reattached to the brick or wood siding.
3. The most obvious gutter repair is to downspout extensions. Gutter extensions often get stepped on and crushed or kicked off entirely. Repairing or adding a new downspout extension is necessary in order to divert water at least 5 feet from you home and foundation.
4.The last of the most common gutter repairs are those dreaded leaks. There may be a seam in the gutter that is leaking. Often times this can be repaired with a seam sealant and maybe a few screws. Some leaks may be caused by gutters that have rusted all the way through. Some of these gutters can be patched and sealed but the gutter will need to be replaced eventually.
