1. Cleaning: One of the most common gutter repairs is simply cleaning out debris that can accumulate in gutters over time. This can be done with a hand tool or a pressure washer.
  2. Re-sealing: Over time, the sealant that holds gutter joints together can wear away or crack, causing leaks. Re-sealing these joints can help prevent leaks.
  3. Replacing damaged sections: If a section of gutter is damaged, it may need to be replaced. This can be done by removing the damaged section and replacing it with a new one.
  4. Adding hangers: Gutters need to be securely attached to the roofline, and if the hangers are loose or missing, they can cause the gutter to sag or pull away from the roof. Adding new hangers can help keep the gutter securely in place.
  5. Adjusting slope: Gutters need to be installed with a slight slope to ensure water flows toward the downspouts. If the slope is off, water can pool in certain areas, causing damage. Adjusting the slope can help prevent this.
