Leaky gutter solution!?!?

My gutters leak where they form a 90 degree angle.

Any one caulk or sealant better than the other to patch this up?

The challenge will be to get the joint clean enough to successfully caulk. There will be dirt and grime and mildew in the joint. There is a caulk made especially for gutters, depending upon the type. Most any exterior grade siliconized, acrylic latex caulk will do.

If the joint will come apart enough to clean, try some water with 25% bleach and a dash of tide. This will bleach things, kill plants, and injure your skin. So be careful. Dab a bit on the joint with a brush, scrub some, and rinse. Once this is dry, you can caulk it. Apply caulk inside the joint, rejoin it, then caulk along the seam on the inside of the gutter.

Hope this helps.
