    The fascia board running around a relatives detached bungalow is 'tilted' / 'angled', as opposed to the commonly seen 'vertical'. The guttering is standard 112mm plastic half round, supported by compatible top fixed plastic brackets. Under heavy rain conditions the gutter tips down and outwards, due to the lack of support at the bottom end of the bracket. Is there a standard off the shelf plastic rainwater product or technique to pack out the gap between the fascia and bottom end of each bracket? Something to wedge each bracket, ensuring it's kept vertical? (Had a quick google search but nothing obvious in the UK market.)

    There must be 50 odd brackets around the roof line, meaning replacement with those metal brackets would be costly for materials and labour! Something like the door stop, but made from plastic would be ideal.

    a bit fiddly but get some lengths of round 25mm plastic conduit. Dirty cheap at screwfix etc. Behind the bottom screw cut to size with an angle to match the fascia. Go round fitting the brackets and on each one fill the conduit with gripfill before screwing in.

    We did one of these about 11 years ago. We nicked a bit of the top of the fascia out and used top hung rafter brackets and gently bent them to suit. Worked pretty well.
