How to Fix Leaking Gutters
Time Required: Under 2 hours
A typical place for leaks to occur in the gutter system is at the downspout joints. Over time, gravity can cause joints to open up, or they can get jostled from below and come loose. This guide will teach you a few simple repairs that will keep your downspout joints tight and reliably leak-free for many years. Ready to find the supplies you need in your local store?

Remove any screws or connecting hardware at the joint and then disassemble the leaking portion of the downspout. You may need to remove other gutter or downspout sections near the leaky joint first.
