Our gutter was recently replaced and there is one spot that has been leaking ever since (let's just say, we haven't had the best experience with the contractor and have been trying unsuccessfully to have him come back for months). I mostly want to understand more about what could be going wrong, and what the solutions would be. Just from looking at the gutter and the space behind it without a lot of knowledge in this area, it seems like any number of things could be going wrong.
- It's at a connection point between two pieces of the gutter and he didn't use any miters to connect there so maybe the gutter itself is leaking. He said the angle wasn't good for that, but I'm curious if that sounds legitimate.
- I'm not sure how well he put on the fascia apron and it looks like there's a big space between the gutter and the fascia, so maybe it could be leaking there?
- Could it be leaking behind the fascia board, like through the roof? It's an old house and he mentioned having difficulty with there being no boards to connect to (I'm not sure if I have that description right since I'm no roofing/gutter expert!)
He said he would be back to fix it (although he's said that for months) and mentioned that he would use "goo". Does that sound like a fix to whatever this issue is? Any help understanding what might be going on here and the solution would be super helpful, as I don't really trust this guy knows what he's doing.
Pictures show the spot that's leaking from above and below. It's a steady leak, kind of like it's running through a penny-sized hole, and it's hard to tell exactly where it's originating.
