Another pesky leak. You know, aluminum gutters are really fantastic and a lot of houses here in the Tri-State area have them. And along the length of the gutter, they rarely leak but sometimes at the corners, or the end caps, or the outlet tubes, a leak can develop overtime.
What is the way to solve the leak? It is really pretty simple. What you need to solve the problem is you need to get the right glue, or the right adhesive, or the right sealer to do the job. Typically, the gutter manufacturer makes one that is compatible with that gutter. Look at the end caps of your gutters just to see if there is a name printed on it. If there is, then go ahead and get the right sealer for the job.
What you want to do next, clean the inside of the area where the leak is occurring. All you really have to do is get rid of any excess water. Go ahead and use some soap and water solution, a small scrub brush, perhaps a scouring pad, scrub it lightly, get it squeaky clean. Rinse it, dry it, and you are ready to go.
Be sure to follow the directions on the tube of sealer. Usually all they want you to do is apply it to a clean, dry surface. Make sure you also apply a liberal amount of the sealer because as it dries, the sealer shrinks. Oh, yeah, check this out. The gutter sealer material, it is really simple to work with. Just squeeze out, it is a lot like toothpaste. Spread it with a little stick or twig. You are going to get great results. Make sure it sticks really well to the inside of the gutter, and all your leaks will stop for sure.
