Gutters are generally neglected until a problem occurs.
Monte shows us how to do some basic gutter repairs.
Get the ladder out and inspect your gutters. If you find the problem early
enough use Selleys Roof & Gutter Silicone Sealant to repair leaks.
If it’s a bigger problem you’ll need to remove the section of gutter and replace
If your problem is on a corner, you’ll need to buy an internal or external piece
of gutter and bracket. Nail in the angle bracket and cut a 45-degree mitre.
Slide into position to ensure there is an overlap. Apply a generous bead of
Selleys Roof & Gutter Silicone Sealant and drill holes for the rivets.
Note: Whenever you're using a ladder, make sure that the base is securely
positioned. Never try and lean too far from the ladders centre. Always get down
and move the ladder to where you need to work.
