for your standard aluminum rain gutters.
We know rain gutters can clog, leak, fill up and then actually hold water against the fascia boards. When we use aluminum fascia board covers the chance of water reaching the fascia wood is greatly reduced, to the point where I believe rain gutters are likely to do more damage than good. Rain gutters hold water near the roof line, where high winds can blow the water up under the shingles, etc.
I may be missing something, and so I ask this most important question.
My eavestrough for the house is painted a certain color but recently i used a latter to get on the roof of my house and ended up scratching the eavestrough exposing its metal…can someone tell me, will this area of this rain gutter turn to the brownish-red rust color over time or is it made of a material that doesnt rust?
I installed spliced rain gutters.

Also, please be sure to explain how to make the tabs to fasten the gutter together.
I don’t know what his deal is. He is seven years old, and generally has no other behavior problems such as chewing and digging. But lately he is dismantling and destroying the rain gutters that run along the ground from the downspouts. I can’t remove the gutters because I have drainage problems in my yard.
If I sprayed bitter apple or something similar on the gutters, it would just wash off with the rain. The gutters are metal, so I don’t think changing to something plastic would help at all.
Any advice is appreciated!
My car does not have rain gutters and my car top carriers were made for earlier built cars. It slips off this new car. Does anyone know of a way to make it work or convert it?
My car’s about 13 years old and parked outside, with a cover on it when it’s not raining. Some tree droppings have made their way through the vent holes into that “rain gutter”. I’ve periodically looked down into the gutter to see just how much has accumulated down there. It hasn’t seemed to be a lot but it appears that it has finally clogged the drain where the rain water leaves the gutter, because I found the passenger side floor drenched (I’m confident it’s not a heater core leak as it’s plain water, not coolant). How have you guys cleaned the gutter in your car? I’m looking and maybe sticking a wire coat hanger down through the holes to loosen up the caked debris and then try to blow it out with canned compressed air (like that used to clean computers) by sticking the can’s nozzle through the holes. I might also try an air compressor, but the nozzle won’t make it through the hole, so I won’t be able to get really close. I’m a little scared to remove the trim that’s covering the gutter because I may not get it to seal against the windshield right when I put it back on, or maybe I’ll break whatever tabs hold it in place (I can’t really see any screws). Maybe I should just go to an auto glass shop to have the trim removed and maybe also have them do the cleaning? Or should I take it to a body shop instead? Regular mechanic?
It’s a 2000 Toyota Echo. I tried to find a download for the service manual, but the one I found no longer contains the file. To my knowledge there aren’t any after market manual and I don’t have the money for the factory manual. Know where I can download it for free?
