gutter problems.. help please..

9 years ago

Hello everyone,

I've attached a photo of gutter work done and want to get everyones opinion. The problem started when my neighbor had water and ice coming from behind gutter and down the side of the wall where the gutter ends near the wall.

As you can see in the attached photo a thin metal strip was first placed on the roof to run the water away from the gutter edge. This didn't work. then a splash guard was put on the end of the gutter and cut into the side of the siding. ( see pics with cut and gaps) that didn't fix the problem. Also 100+ feet of gutter was replaced all the way around her lower area are and still not fixed?

Does anyone see a problem with the steps described above?

Also now the water runs down, hits the splash guard and goes down the behind the vinyl siding and down the block making the basement more damp? (running through slit cut into siding for splash guard)

PLEASE TELL US IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL OPINION WHAT WAS DONE WRONG HERE...
