    We have an IP in Brisbane's west that has a leak where the guttering joins the down pipe, so drips on the steps at the front of the house, creating a slip hazard. The rear gutter also has weeds growing in it, so needs to be cleared.

    I've previously used Kevin Cossor (Cossor Roofing) for a roof repair - he was excellent, but hasn't been well. After waiting months for him to quote (and numerous phone calls to him), I need to find someone else to do the job.

    As this might just require sealing up the leak (with silicone?) and cleaning the gutters, can I get away with just using a handyman? The roof is quite high, though, so I'd want someone fully insured to do the work.

    Recommendations for someone suitable would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    GG

    i'd go handyman if you upload photo of leak will have a better idea of how long but i'd think 1-1.5 hours if it's just silicone, just look around make sure they are insured as you said.

    Cheers, Elives

    Thanks, Elives. Any recommendations for a good handyman out that way?
