GUTTER REPAIR & SQUIRREL PROBLEM!

 

XL Sign1

 

THE SQUIRRELS WERE BECOMING A MAJOR PROBLEM HERE AS THEY CHEWED THROUGH THE FACIA BOARD BEHIND THE GUTTER IN SEVERAL SPOTS GAINING ACCESS TO THE HOMEOWNER’S ATTIC.

THE RAFTER TAILS IN  A FEW PLACES WERE DAMAGED AND THE FACIA BOARD DROPPED A GOOD 3 TO 4  INCHES WHICH STOPPED THE GUTTER FROM FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.

ALSO SOME OF THE SLATES HAD BEEN BROKEN BY ALL OF THE ACTIVITY.

WE WERE ABLE TO REMOVE THE GUTTER AND FACIA BOARD TEMPORARILY, SISTER THE RAFTER TAILS AND RE-INSTALL, RAISING THE FACIA BACK INTO PROPER POSITION. THEN WE CAPPED THE FACIA WITH ALUMINUM TO PREVENT ANY MORE CRITTER DAMAGE. THE GUTTER NOW FLOWS FROM SIDE TO SIDE PERFECTLY! …PROBLEM SOLVED!

WE REPLACD THE DAMAGED SLATES AND INSTALLED LEAF RELIEF GUTTER SCREENING. PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY SCREENING SYSTEM WE WILL USE AS I HAVEN’T FOUND A BETTER ONE.
