2. Waterproofing DIY – gutters

Leaking gutters are not good. So how do you detect and then fix a leaking gutter?

A tell-tale sign of a leaking gutter is when there is excess water pouring from somewhere other than the downpipe. This can turn problematic for homes and can be an unsightly annoyance, especially if the leak is over a pergola or outdoor entertaining area.

Leaks can also cause scouring of dirt and if powerful enough can damage your plants underneath. Other damage can be a bit more serious especially if that water or leak ends up inside your home!

Help prevent the deterioration of your gutter system with this waterproofing DIY project. New gutters are expensive, look after your gutters by waterproofing now and they will last a long time as well as save you money.

Get all your gutter leaks sorted pronto with Liquid Rubber. All you need is a roller or paintbrush that fits into your gutter piping and apply 2-3 coats to the problem area.
