The gutter that sits over the back wall of our house appears to be overflowing and seeping into the back wall. The water then flow down the inside of the wall and leaks out of the windows and door frames. This only occurs during a very heavy rain and I assume the water is too heavy to drain away fast enough.
I have attached a couple of pictures of the gutter for your reference.
At this point we can't afford to pay a plumber the $1,000 they are likely to charge. So, if I can DIY a simple fix I'm all for it.
Having conducted a bit of research online my suggested action plan is as follows:
1. attach some flashing behind the gutter that prevents the water from seaping into the wall.
2. putting a dab of silicone at the valley of each corrugated spot to prevent any backflow
Can I please ask for some feedback on the above, or alternative suggestions to assist.
