We Take Care of Gutter Repair in Flower Mound
At Mr. Handyman of Flower Mound, Lewisville and Denton, we prioritize providing excellent customer service above all. Your rain gutter repair in Flower Mound will begin when we arrange a convenient day and time for your service appointment. This is typically done over the phone, but if you’d like to receive an accurate estimate first, we’ll send someone out to your property to conduct an assessment.
We want you to be fully informed and feel confident in your decision to choose us for your Flower Mound gutter repair service, so we’ll take the time to answer any questions you may have about your trough and downspout damage or your service.
We’ll also let you know whether or not you need to purchase any materials for the repairs. Our handyman team will bring all the tools and supplies needed for the job, but if the repairs needed are extensive, you may need to purchase replacement materials. For example, sectional vinyl troughs that are damaged beyond repair may require us to remove and replace some segments. To ensure that these new segments match your existing troughs, we’ll ask you to order the necessary amount of the same product, if still available.
When your handyman expert arrives for your service appointment, he or she will introduce themself to you, explain what they’re there to do, and ask if you have any remaining questions. After giving them the green light, they’ll get straight to work.
In the past, we’ve repaired a wide variety of troughs and downspouts. If your troughs are made out of a different material than those listed below, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to find out how we can repair them. Some popular trough and downspout materials include:
- Copper gutters
- Aluminum gutters
- Vinyl gutters
- And more!
Our Flower Mound gutter repair methods will vary according to the nature of the damage, as well as the type of troughs you have. That being said, your service may include some or all of the following stages and repair methods:
For many types of repairs, we’ll need to clean out your troughs first. Without cleaning, any adhesives or sealants we may need to use for your Flower Mound gutter repair would not adhere properly.
In the image above, you can see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ of a gutter cleaning service we performed. Our customers’ troughs had a great deal of buildup in them. Using a ladder, gloves, gutter scoop and telescopic scraper, we removed all of the debris. After washing the troughs out, they were ready for repair.
REPAIRING HOLES AND LEAKY JOINTS
Some of the tools and supplies we may use to repair troughs that are leaking through joints or holes include:
- Power drill
- Putty knife
- Aviation snips
- Roof patching cement
- Silicone sealant
- Slip joints
Small holes may be repaired using roofing cement. To repair these, we’ll use a putty knife to apply the cement to the hole, applying as many coats as needed. For larger holes, we’ll cover the perimeter of the hole with cement and create a custom flashing patch to go on top of it.
For joints that have loosened and are leaking, whether they’re on your troughs or downspout, we’ll apply a silicone sealant to reseal the joint. If your old hardware has rusted or become brittle due to sun exposure, we’ll replace these. Another option is to install slip joints to leaking gutter sections.
REPAIRING SAGGING GUTTERS
When both seamless gutters and sectional gutters begin to sag and collect standing water, it’s safe to assume that they’re pulling away from the roof. The cause of this is generally one of two things: a damaged fascia board or deteriorating hardware.
In the images below, you can see that the wooden fascia boards are looking worse for wear. The peeling paint in the first image and the brittle-looking wood in the second image indicate that these boards are rotting. For both of these repairs, we replaced the fascia boards so that the troughs could adhere to them properly.
If it’s been a long time since your troughs and downspouts were installed, your hardware may simply be in need of replacement. Traditionally, hardware called ‘spikes’ and ‘ferrules’ were used to secure troughs to fascia boards. We can use fascia hanging brackets to securely attach your troughs to your roof.

FAQs For Gutter Repair: Flower Mound Edition
WHAT CAUSES DAMAGE REQUIRING GUTTER REPAIR IN FLOWER MOUND?
The main culprit of damage requiring gutter repair in Flower Mound is clogged gutters full of leaves, pine needles, dirt and other debris. Other causes include:
- Hail damage
- Improper installation
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED NEW GUTTERS?
Sometimes it’s hard to judge whether a gutter replacement or gutter repair in Flower Mound is the right option for you. If your current gutters are a couple of decades old and require many repairs that will not fix the problem, but rather temporarily get your drainage system functioning properly again, a new gutter installation may be best for you.
Our handyman experts can take a look and advise you on the best course of action using their many years of experience.
HOW CAN I MAINTAIN MY GUTTERS?
Regular gutter maintenance is the best way to avoid future repairs. In addition to avoiding water damage, this is the main reason why you need a gutter cleaning service or to take the time to keep your troughs clean on your own. Our handyman team offers gutter cleaning and guard installation services. Adding gutter guards to your clean troughs can reduce the likelihood of clogs developing and the frequency of cleaning.
In the image below, you can see the results of a screen gutter guard installation service we performed for one of our residential customers.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEAMLESS AND SECTIONAL GUTTERS?
Seamless systems are installed in just a handful of continuous pieces. The only seams are at the corners. In contrast, sectional systems are installed in a series of gutter sections. This makes them a great option for DIY installations, but also more susceptible to developing leaky joints.
CAN I REPAIR MY GUTTERS ON MY OWN?
DIY gutter repairs in Flower Mound may be possible, depending on the type of damage. For example, unclogging a downspout is likely something you can do on your own.
For other types of gutter repair, Flower Mound residents tend to prefer to call us in to do the job.
