    Default Need advice on fallen rain gutter

    We're renovating now to sell next year.
    Anyone have suggestion on what I should check before screwing the rain gutter back on?

    I'd like to raise the end so the water will fall more towards the pipe.

    Also, is there a better/updated rain gutter clip that this?
    As it always seems to catch leaves.

    Any suggestions for leaf proofing corrugated roof rain gutters.

    One option is to use external brackets, less likely to catch leaves but visually not as clean a look as the internals.

    About to go grab one of these.
    Wondering if you would use the same gal nails as 10 fell out.
    I would deduce it was a chain reaction.

    Or move to gal screws.

    Wafer head screws.
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Two ideas. Neither of which will be helpful. First is to chop down all the trees near the house. Second, less environmentally cavalier but equally useless, remove all the gutters.

    Just thought of a third idea. You could probably make s fortune with this one. Tree vacuum. Boom! Million dollar idea.
