I need to re-hang about a 10 feet of gutter.
This section in which I need to re-hang is the furthest away from the actual downspout that goes into the ground and its slightly drooping causing it to ALWAYS hold an inch or two of water until it evaporates.

I need to re-hang and slightly raise up the angle.

How do I do this?

I know those long nails run through those sleeves and in turn attach to the eve but what is the best way remove those and not destroy the rest of the gutter as I take down and re-hang the bad part?

O comn.

I actually almost took a tannerite size chuck out of my house when I cut down a 400lb branch off of a huge tree in my backyard this weekend.

I looked at the angle and thought I'd be able to clear my house just by cutting it at the trunk without having to make a cut closer to the end of the branch and sure enough it pivoted funny and came crashing down directly on the peak of my roof, pivoted on the peak of the roof then part that I cut by the trunk almos slammed into my window.

Lucky that is one of the most supported area's of the roof(peak) and there was not even a mark that showed any truma to the roof. Whew.

You should have seen me wrestling this 400lb branch that propped up against my house to the ground.

I got lucky that day I didn't destroy anything.

Brute force and ignorance works best on gutters.

Cut the aluminum nails and sleeves so you can take the gutter down without damaging it. You can silicone the nail heads in so that you don't see holes in the gutter.

Rehang with these.

Hmmm I'll have to look into those hangers.

They got a name?

Most of the gutter experts around here are experts on the street edge gutters from long periods of time spent there.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I just got back in.

They are just called a "screw type gutter hanger" or "hidden screw gutter hanger".
