Repair a hole (if a gutter doesn't drain properly, isn't tilted toward the downspout, or is sunk and needs to rise) You can use the same process to repair holes in steel and aluminum gutters. Once the hole is clean and dry, spread roofing cement (around the edges of the well) and apply a properly sized patch of metal gaskets. Mix enough epoxy resin, with the correct volume of hardener, to cover the areas covered by the metal patch. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when mixing the resin and hardener; using the correct ratio is essential.
How do you fix a hole in a ditch? Most of the time, a leaking gutter is the result of a faulty joint between the sections or of a hole in the gutter itself. Holes in gutters are obviously a problem, as they prevent gutters from directing rainwater away from your home. Avoiding holes in your home's gutter system comes down to routine maintenance and regular gutter cleaning. Aluminum gutters can also develop holes; although they probably don't rust, aluminum can be drilled more easily than steel gutters.
