@LouK,

 

Welcome to Workshop. We're pleased you could join us and trust that you'll be inspired by our community member projects and also receive plenty of helpful advice and information. 

 

I'm sure members will be able to provide advice to improve your guttering. I take it water is currently pooling at the moment? Let me tag former plumber @LePallet for you, he might like to kick off the replies. 

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason

Re: Adjusting gutter slope

Hi @LouK

How much of the gutter are you wanting fall 

unfortunately You May to or get a roof plumber to take the gutter that is needed off and hopefully adjust it enough with out  taking to Much off 

or another option is add another down pipe in the area where is affected

Re: Adjusting gutter slope

We have been working on adding downpipes to eliminate problems.
But 18 metres full length, side of the house runs well apart from the last 1.5 metre forcing it back and to pool in the middle and overflow when raining.
Every corner would hurt to be adjusted to as far as we can see.
I was hoping to be able to do it ourselves by somehow adjusting those brackets. But i cannot find any videos or info on it.

Re: Adjusting gutter slope

Yeah I can see what you mean. The only way of adjusting those brackets is taking the gutter out and lifting the bottom of the sheets to re adjust each bracket

Good luck
