Hello jim5596.  Welcome to the Community!


How to fix a leaking gutter will depend on why it is leaking.  Three things come to mind.


The first is a gutter which has not been installed with the proper pitch.

The leak will be over the top of a gutter that quickly fills up but cannot drain.

The only repair for this would be to take the gutter down and reinstall it pitched down to the downspout.


Second would be a gutter leaking because it is clogged, filled with tree debris and worn shingle granules.

The fix for this would be to clean out the gutters.


Third would be a gutter seam or connection that has either failed or was never sealed in the first place.

You could either use a sealing tape or a sealing caulk to fix this type of leak.




Is this what you are looking for?
