    How to identify where guttering is leaking


    There's water leaking from my guttering and it's spilling down onto the surface below. How can I quickly identify where the leak is coming from exactly? And is this a job that I can safety perform by myself?

    "If its leaking from a joint then the rubber needs changing or you can use gutterseal but better to change rubber or get new unit from wickes or roofing yard...if its leaking from middle of gutter were no joints probaly cracked and will need replacing mostly gutters leak after years of service to roof and mostly because of rubber seal were joints are ....this is very cheap to fix £5 max for new unit or new length gutter cost £10 max also remember to get sqaure or round that matches your gutter hope this helps"

    "If you have a leaky gutter. To Identify where the leak is coming from, just wait for it to rain and it will be clear where it is leaking. If your guttering is leaking it’s going to be down to the rubber seals which can either be the joiner, corner or stop ends etc. And it is possible to carry out the job yourself as long as it’s safe and you're confident in doing so. But it’s better to have a professional do it just to be safe."
