Gutter leaks happen.
How To Fix Gutter Leaks. It can be from old gutters to not taking great care of them. There are ways to prevent it from happening as much.
We, at Gutters & Guards, Inc., do seamless aluminum gutters. This means that there are less seams for leaks to spout in, and that rust will not form. There are less nail holes. They will only be attached to the fascia and downspouts. So downspout and gutter leaks may form at that meeting place. It could happen with any gutter set up because it is a weaker point.
To prevent leaks from happening there you can use a caulk that you can apply every time you clean your gutters (spring and fall). This will fill the areas where a leak can form. A recommendation from This Old House is butyl caulking to fill the seams in or a silicone caulk. You need to make sure if you choose to caulk the seams that you do it when the weather is completely dry (and your gutters are dry too).
It is vital to make sure that you gutters don’t have leaks for a long time because this can cause damage to your home.
