    We inherited the shed when we bought our property. Unfortunately, it is built in such a place that there is constant debris of leaves, branches, pine cones etc. We are in the Pacific NW region. Recently a big branch fell down on the gutter; shortly after the whole piece came down. AM attaching...

    The side of my house is along a helpful grade, and I've been using gravity with an above-ground pipe to shuttle the gutter water away from a particularly high-producing roof gutter. Without it, water leaks into the basement big-time. With it, the basement is dry as a bone. My plan is to move...
  3. Roofing/Siding
    After a couple of years of window leaks, i presume behind my siding, seems like this could be my culrpit. This is a roof joint on my slate roof and i suspect water is running in where ive highlighted. Any suggestions for some kind of sheet metal / drip cap that i can close up with gutter...

    Hello! I hope someone here can offer some suggestions on the right and/or most pragmatic way to fix this. I have a second floor balcony that seems to lack some sort of drip edge or other method to allow water to fall off into the super-gutter below it, where my screen patio enclosure attaches...
  5. Building & Construction
    This is a three story building. Several of the gutter drains terminate directly into the ground into I'm assuming the waste line that takes it to the street. The drain is just short of ground level so there's a small gap where water escapes before going all the way into the ground drain...

    Hi all! I've installed invisaflow powder coat metal gutter screens around my home in February of 2019. The roof pitch is maybe 4-12 or 5-12. Our basement has a history of water seepage so it's important that the gutters work optimally. Link...

    I have two stories home with the two stage tile roof. Downspout from the top roof comes down near the top ridge to the bottom roof (above patio) and flows down. The bottom gutter is just 1 ft in length. But water is just flowing out from the edge of the tile. I find there is a metal sheet close...

    Hi there, I have an old garage that I need to install some gutters on because the water dripping from it is causing issues (an ugly line in my grass). I wanted to install some k-style 5-inch aluminum gutters (the type you'd pick up at Home Depot for example) but I am concerned because the...

    I just had a contractor install new gutters with covers on a flat part of the roof (mu house is a dormered Cape Cod) Today was the first big rain and the water was running down between the gutter and r=the soffit. Could it be that the covered gutters are not good for flat roof?

    We're going to do new gutters on a house that had the existing gutters removed. I see there's 5 inch and 6 inch gutters. Other than the obvious that one is bigger than the other, is there really a benefit to getting a 6" gutter over a 5" one? This is an investment property, so we're looking...

    I was replacing my gutters when rain started and the gutter filled with water. After that, there was a big black spider sitting under water in the gutter. Never seen before.

    Hi. The first is an old picture. At this point, I'm planning to replace the decking with LockDry aluminum decking which will create a waterproof surface across the entire deck and make the under side a little dryer. However, I have a gutter running through the deck. I plan to add pavers...

    I'm posting this for my sister, who lives 400 miles from me. They have a large house, 4,500 sq. ft., on the side of a hill and have apparently been plagued by water issues. She called this morning and related that there is a clog somewhere in the large pipes that carry the gutter water away...

    Anyone tried Leak Stopper Rubber Flexx before on a rain gutter repair? Looks interesting with the sticky tape and then painting the rubber coating on top. youtube.com/watch?v=b6_qO3ZDrNo Thoughts?
  15. Roofing/Siding
    Good evening everyone, I recently had a local contractor come and replace my gutters and downspouts and I had a few questions about pictures I took after climbing on the roof. First, I had to call them back 3 separate times because they bent up one of the drip edges. The second time I called...
  16. Painting
    My ceiling has been leaking lately in different spots. Paint has also started to peel on the ceiling. I believe it is a gutter problem, because when I cleaned my gutters a couple months ago it stopped. It leaked the other day again (which I believe is from ice build up in the gutter). So my...
  17. Roofing/Siding
    TL;DR - water is making its way into the wall cavity from I believe when the clogged gutter over flowed and water made its way over the fascia and along the soffit and down along the corner of the room, pooling at the sill plate and wicking it's way along that. However, that doesn't really...

    Hey y'all! I'm helping mother in law with a rather serious ongoing water leak. The water comes off the roof, along the adjoining wall and to the gutter (that abuts the wall), but some water runs between the gutter and the wall and has rotted the exterior siding, rotted the interior drywall and...

    We recently had a contractor replace our downspouts because of a leak in the top s piece. The main straight part of our downspout has always been one piece. When they replaced they put on the wrong color and had to re do. When they re did it they used two pieces instead of one 10ft section and...

    Please see the pics below (the second one is the inside of a downspout). The outside of both are painted, so no point in an outside pic. All I know is that it is metal. Would anyone be able to tell what kind of gutters are these? Would this be copper? If so, I cannot seem to find copper K-style...
