Repairing leaking gutters:

An overflow usually means a blocked gutter, which means you would need a gutter clear, but a drip would be coming down through a hole or a crack in the gutter so it would need a gutter repair.
To repair a gutter that is leaking usually one of the following methods is used:

• If the rubber on the union joint has deteriorated then the joint would be replaced.
• If there are more then a couple of repairs on one part of the guttering then normally recommended to replace that section
• Gutter sealant on gutters is rarely applied as this can be affected by the changes in temperature

 

Guttering and Roof Repair solutions in London and the Home Counties

There are different solutions for different types of gutter repairs. Cast iron can be repaired by applying a thick, runny, gluey liquid called acrypol, which also contains some fibre. Once applied on the cracks or holes on the cast, it will start thickening and solidifies blocking the crack. There are other thicker, paste like material which can be used for larger cracks and holes. If the cast guttering is very old and has many large cracks then it might be more economical to replace the gutters.
