Leaky gutters are easy to repair. Leak Stopper Rubber Flexx has a great 2 part system with Waterproof Tape and Liquid Coating. Video sponsored by Gardner-Gibson company. I was pleased with how easily this product can be installed and that having both the tape and liquid coating provides two layers of waterproof protection. The liquid coating is available in clear, white, or grey colors to easily match most gutters. Amazon USA: https://amzn.to/2wyE1Kf (affiliate link) Rubber Flexx Website: https://goo.gl/xYvRdi Always remember - be safe. TomahawkDIY is not responsible for decisions you make The waterproof tape and liquid coating work together in a two part system for best results. The waterproof tape is just that - a super sticky waterproof tape that sticks to just about anything. Once it's installed, the liquid coating can be brushed on top as a second layer of waterproof protection. This product can also be used on many different surfaces. .257
Parbond is a synthetic rubber penetrating sealant designed for sealing small joints or gaps between metal, glass, masonry and wood. See videos at http://www.mrhardware.com/ It is resistant to sunlight and temperature variations. It will seal small joints and cracks up to 1/4", and still remain flexible. It is versatile, has moderate elongation or compression and dries quickly. Parbond provides weather protection and moisture resistance at various temperatures through evaporation of solvent to temperature extremes of -20°F to 180°F, water, water vapor and air pressure. Parbond can be used within the opening or as a surface coating over very fine cracks. Typical applications are: miter joints in window or door frames, needle glazing, top dressing over non-dry sealants to avoid dirt pick up. It can be a sealant for rain gutters and downspouts, around automotive windshields and back lights, and for sealing of sinks, tile and ducts in kitchens, galleys, and bathrooms.
Did you ever wonder how they weld aluminum with a Mig Welder? It can be very difficult, if not impossible. Usually, they use an expensive Spool Gun that is an attachment to a Mig Welder. That allows a welder to get smooth aluminum welds. But, who has that kind of money to spend on a Spool Gun? This video shows how to weld aluminum without any add-ons. With a few tricks and secrets, aluminum can actually be welded with a 110 volt Mig Welder.

Don't attempt to Mig Weld or do any other type of welding without Certified Welding Training. With or Without that Certified knowledge, welding can be hazardous, and by welding you do so at your own risk. NEVER open up a welding machine as it can still have dangerous voltage built-up in the electronics. Whenever changing out consumables on a Mig Welder, first TURN OFF the machine and unplug it, also.

This video takes a look at how to repair aluminium guttering to a good standard that should last many years. Often aluminum guttering will start to leak from a joint, corner, or stop end after about 10 years. Especially if holding standing water.
Thumbing more mastic over the stop of the original built up sealant can fail early, as can a simple paint on solution. This aluminum gutter repair has worked well for me over the years, and one tube of gutter sealant and a roll of scrim will repair many, many gutter leaks.
If your are in the UK all the product links and other guttering repairs can be found on my website here : http://www.fixmyroof.co.uk/guttering-repairs/
For those in the USA or elsewhere try a good quality gutter sealant like this one : http://amzn.to/1TOZvV7 (affiliate)
