If home maintenance is taking up too much of your time, money and effort, you need to do something about it. As one of the trusted gutter guard companies in Chelsea, Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama shares some secrets that can help you achieve a low-maintenance home.

  1. Metal Roofing — Metal roofs feature factory applied coatings designed to protect the roof from corrosion. Metal roofs are wind-resistant and can efficiently shed rainwater, thanks to their inherently smooth surface. It takes little effort to maintain a metal roof, and, with an expected lifespan of 50 years, you can enjoy these benefits much longer than traditional wood shake or asphalt shingle roofs.

  1. Gutter Covers — Also known as gutter guards, gutter covers help keep the gutters clean by preventing leaves, debris and most solid matter from entering the gutter troughs. There are several types of gutter protection systems on the market, but they’re not all the same. Those that work like filters often retain leaves and debris, which means you will still need to clean them from time to time. Gutter Helmet® is the best option because it covers the entire top of the gutters. Its unique profile sheds leaves and debris onto the ground while routing rainwater through specially designed narrow slits. Gutter covers help keep your gutters clear, reducing or even eliminating maintenance requirements.

  1. Vinyl Siding and Windows — Vinyl is a building material that has become synonymous with the term “low maintenance”. Vinyl siding and window frames typically come in molded-in colors, which eliminates the need for repainting. They’re also easy to clean: all you need is a combination of water and dish soap and a soft brush for scrubbing tight spots. Stubborn stains can be removed with diluted vinegar. An average house with vinyl siding can be fully cleaned in a matter of hours.

  1. Composite Decking — Traditional wooden decks are notoriously hard to maintain, which is why many homeowners are switching to decking made of composite material. Composites are polymers combined with materials such as glass or wood fibers. Among their many benefits, composites are very low maintenance. They can be manufactured to mimic wood grains realistically and can even be painted if needed. Composite decking is impervious to the effects of heat and moisture, and is much easier to keep clean and maintain than wood.
