Roofing repairs are part of being a home owner, whether you do them yourself or hire a professional. For small roof repairs, you will need the right tools. While replacing roofs, you can also replace your gutters and drain pipes.
You'll need all the appropriate materials on hand, since you won't want to climb up and down a ladder more than necessary. Gutter repair requires aluminum eavestrough, gutter connectors, downpipes and straps. You'll also need end pieces and mitered corner pieces. Gutter spikes, hooks and flashing add to the mix. It's always a good idea to add guards over your gutters to keep debris from clogging the system. These come in rigid and flexible designs. At the bottom of your downspouts, you may need splash blocks and flexible extensions. These help to direct water away from your home.
