Keeping a home looking beautiful can take some work. Fortunately, there are a few things that can help you “automate” maintenance tasks and save you time and resources. In today’s post, local gutter guard cleaning and installation company Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama shares tips on how to automate outdoor maintenance tasks.

Use a Robotic Lawn Mower

Maintaining your lawn requires taking your lawnmower to it every once in a while, or hiring someone to do it. Either way, you need to spend time to make sure it’s done right. This is where a robotic lawn mower may come in handy. A typical robotic lawn mower works very much like a robotic vacuum cleaner, which means you have to install border wire to define the areas that require cutting. Advanced models may have additional features that let it map the areas to mow and return to its dock if it starts raining.

Install a Gutter Protection System

Nobody would go out and say they enjoy scooping out leaves and debris from their gutters or risk their safety climbing the roof’s edge. With a gutter protection system, you don’t have to do this. Gutter protection systems cover the top of the gutter troughs and separate the leaves, dirt and debris from rainwater. Typically, gutter protection systems retain detritus at the top — which means it still needs to be cleaned — but Gutter Helmet® does not. Its nose-forward profile lets leaves and debris fall to the ground while utilizing the surface tension of rainwater to route it into the gutters. With Gutter Helmet®, your gutters will never require maintenance.

Switch to Low Maintenance Decking and Siding

Traditionally, decking and siding are made of wood. This means they need to be maintained regularly, otherwise, the wood underneath would be vulnerable to rot, mold, and swelling. If your siding and/or decking is due for replacement, consider replacing them with low-maintenance options like vinyl or composite. Many siding and decking options are easy to clean and maintain and are indistinguishable from real wood.
