How to clean & repair clogged gutters (Page 2)

HOME

Step 5. To straighten a sagging gutter, remove hangers or spikes in the sagging area. Snap a chalk line at the correct height, raise the gutter to the line, and then reinstall the hangers.

 

Step 6. To straighten gutters that are supported with hanging brackets, loosen the brackets, lift the gutter and reinstall the brackets.

 

Step 7. Splash blocks are designed to direct water from the downspouts away from the house foundation. If you have these blocks, make sure they’re positioned directly under the downspouts. If you don’t have the blocks, buy and install them.

 

FYI

 
A folding extension is a gutter accessory that mounts on the bottom on a downspout and works like a splash block to send the water away from the house. Because it’s hinged, the pipe can be folded up out of the way when mowing or working in planting beds next to the house.
