Gutter Leaking? Liquid Rubber to the Rescue

Gutters are the unsung heroes of roof maintenance, channeling water away from your home and its foundation. But when they leak, they can lead to serious damage, including compromising your gutter system and even impacting your foundation.

Fortunately, DIY enthusiasts can turn to Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant for an effective and affordable solution.

What Causes Gutters to Leak

Leaks in gutters can stem from various issues - from missing screws, loose joints, to rusting metal caused by prolonged exposure to water. Sometimes, even previous repair attempts with inadequate materials can lead to leaks.

Steps to Fix a Leaking Gutter

Here's how you can tackle leaking gutters yourself with Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant:

  • Remove Debris: Clear the gutter of leaves and debris.
  • Clean the Surface: Ensure the area is thoroughly cleaned and dried.
  • Bridge Joints and Seams: Apply Liquid Rubber Seam Tape across the leak, ensuring it lays flat.
  • Protect Painted Areas: Use painter's tape around the repair zone to keep finishes clean.
  • Apply Sealant: Brush a thick coat of Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant over the seam tape.
  • Allow to Dry: Wait 4 to 6 hours for the first coat to become tacky.
  • Add a Second Coat: Apply another heavy coat for a secure seal.
  • Remove Painter's Tape: Do this while the sealant is wet.
  • Dry Thoroughly: Allow several days for the membrane to cure fully.
  • Test for Leaks: Check your work by pouring water over the area.

Maintaining Your Repaired Gutter

While Liquid Rubber Sealant offers long-lasting protection, regular seasonal checks are still essential. For comprehensive protection, apply the sealant across the gutter's interior surface to guard against future leaks.
