The fascia is quite new and I'd like to avoid drilling extra holes in it,
hence the question. There's sufficient overhang such that it wouldn't be
possible to fix guttering into the brick. Do adjustable brackets like this
exist for attachment to the fascia? It would need to be white to match the
PVC guttering, rather than bare metal.


The holes tend to be at the top of the ordinary plastic brackets, so if, as
makes sense, you are leaving the high side the same and raising the low side
progressively from the centre the brackets will cover the old screw holes.
This seems to me by far the easiest way to do it.

Even if the new bracket position is an inch or so away from its original
location, the gutter itself will hide the original hole.

Bostic used to sell an acetone-based white UPVC filler which was very
effective, but I think it has been discontinued. A blob of white
silicone sealer carefully smoothed before it skins over should hide
