Technical Sealing gutters

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Saxman, Nov 23, 2014.

  1. What are you fellas using to seal rain gutters? Wasn't sure if I should just use regular seam sealer or if there is something better.

    Also, I cleaned out the old sealer and ground out a bit of rust (nothing too severe) but there is still a little rust down in the seams that I can't get to. My plan is to use some POR-15 and work it down into the seams and then topcoat with epoxy primer. I assume that I would use the seam sealer over the epoxy primer and then epoxy over the top again before color coats. Does this sound right?

    I imagine there will be some shrinkage of the sealer so I'm thinking it will need to cure well before top coating?

    I would use a 2 part seam sealer like the one in the link. With the 2 part you will not have any shrinkage ,is a far better product than a one part and looks very professional. I would do all of your prep work and primer then apply the sealer, you can paint over the sealer with no issues. The product I linked flows quite a bit, they also make a similar one that doesn't flow as much (controlled flow). The downfall, it's pricey and you need the applicator gun for that cartridge. (On a side note, I can borrow you the gun and help you out if needed. I do a lot of seam sealing in my occupation)

  3. Thanks for the info AutoDave and I appreciate your offer. Since you're not that far away from me, I might take you up on it too. It's going to be a least a month before my drip rails are ready though.

    Thanks again!
