I have a problem with water overflowing from my gutter in one spot.
It is causing problems with water around my foundation (and in my
basement) during heavy rains, so I need to repair the problem.
Here is what is happening:
- The gutter is bent in one spot. That spot is lower than the rest of
- During heavy rains, water overflows from the gutter at that lower
spot. (There are no clogged leaves or debris or anything like that.)
Here are my questions:
- Is it better to try to bend the gutter back into shape? Is there a
special tool that I can use for that? Could I bang on it with a
mallet or a hammer?
- Is there a quick way that I can bolster the gutter with aluminum
foil or something like that? Is there a product made for this
Thank you for any help you can provide.
