With the end of summer comes the beginning of the rainy season, at least in most parts of the country. Now is the perfect time to clean and repair your rain gutters. After all, once the rains come, it will be too late! To shore up your rain gutters while the weather is still dry, we recommend The Permanent Patch.

If you have vinyl rain gutters, you may have noticed some of the sections becoming cracked or separated. Weathering and debris can cause your gutters to move and undermine the seams between the sections. If you have aluminum gutters, you’re more susceptible to punctures and seam separation.

All of these common problems can be solved with the application of the permanent patch. Simply pull the separated seams back together, cut out a square of permanent patch, and apply directly over the seam. Cracks and punctures can be covered in the same way. The patch is waterproof, meaning it should hold strong in even the wettest storms. Make sure to do this on a sunny day, as the patch is UV activated.
The permanent patch can then be sanded and painted to match the finish of the rest of your gutters. And there you have it: an easy solution to rain gutter leaks, just in time for fall.
