Default Rooting and OTAs

Hello, i'm new to this phone but I've flashed dozens and dozens of roms for my old phones.

If I root and install a custom recovery, is there an easy way to just unroot and install stock? (I did this with my old phone to receive OTAs)

I'm perfectly happy with stock rom I just want to tweak (xposed) a few things and use titanium to remove some bloat.

I would never use a rooted phone without a backup, so I need a custom recovery too.

I have read the topic about the "one click tools" to root and install recoveries, I'm fine with that, seems easy enough.

But what if I want to take an OTA? What would be the easiest way to do that?

I saw a topic about *going back to full stock * and read through it but maybe there's an easier way?

The guide is in the general section -
LG G2 - VS980 - Root Stock - G2 Tweakbox
HTC Rezound - S-Off - Retired

I've used the tot method and found that it was pretty easy. A few steps but pretty straight forward...
