If your cast iron gutters are leaking, a joint is probably the problem. Joints develop play naturally over time. This allows water to penetrate between the joint and drip. A quick fix is instant patch tape or sealant, but this won’t last.
The correct way to repair leaky joints is to separate the joint, clean it, remove corrosion, apply sealant to the joint, refit the gutter together, and then put in a new nut and bolt. This repair will solve your problem for the next 10 years.
If your cast iron gutter has holes in it, a quick fix can be achieved using gutter sealant to plug the holes. Bigger holes can be filled with glass-fibre filler. Depending on the condition of the cast iron, however, we may recommend replacement.
