Learn to simply repair your leaky gutter
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.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR THIS PROJECT
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.
Clean any caulk or adhesive from both parts of the joint using a stiff wire brush. Replace the rubber gaskets on vinyl or PVC gutters.
Apply a bead of silicone caulk to one of the parts at the joint area, then reassemble the gutter system. Add any necessary fasteners or connectors.
