I’m currently repairing and renovating the cast iron gutters on my old cottage. Today’s repair is to a badly rusted 90 degree corner section, where the gutter had completely rusted through.
I actually bought a new replacement section from Gutter Supplies http://bit.ly/2ELm6E9 but I couldn’t use it as the collar was too close to the corner section, so I had to resort to plan B – of filling the hole and repairing the corner section of my existing gutter.
I bought some Isopon P38 and Isopon P40. The P40 is a fibre glass reinforced filler and so is great for spanning holes. The P38 is a multi-purpose filler which is typically applied on top of the P40 to fill the minor holes and dents.
With the Isopon P40 applied and set, I sanded it lightly with my Black & Decker power file sander. I then applied a thin coat of P38, and once set, sanded this with a 120 grit sand paper.
I then primed the section of gutter with Bonda Rust Primer, and then applied a top coat of Johnstone’s Stormshield Gloss.
So that’s a large hole fixed. Stay tuned for next week’s video where I’ll be fixing a smaller hole with Milliput epoxy putty, and then finally glueing a section of gutter back together with JB Weld Epoxy adhesive.
