What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Austin?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments sit in direct UV rays all day long, so it’s no wonder when they start to discolor or fade. You need to replace your window coverings in that case because they will look more unattractive with time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Austin, try Polywood® shutters. These durable plantation shutters don’t ever fade or yellow in the sun so you can place them in your brightest window sills with no worries. They also will not stain from water damage or grime, making them appropriate for any area of your house.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Yellow In The Sun

Most window treatments fade in Austin if subjected to penetrating UV rays. The sun wash out materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, spoiling the attractive color of your window treatments. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade over time as well, which is why even cheap window blinds turn yellow in the sun. The one way around this is using window coverings that are made from UV-resistant materials, like Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from a long-lasting, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically adheres to the material to avoid discoloration and damage from sunlight. While UV rays fade or discolor most window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in the sun for decades and never turn yellow or fade. They stay a elegant, clean white that always matches your decor.

Polywood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Moisture Damage

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Austin, humidity and water can discolor window coverings too. Wood and fabric treatments can both experience water stains and similar damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments in humid environments like your bathroom or kitchen, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist ill effects from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they don’t get water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Sticky residues and dirt can discolor most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their exceptional finish avoids staining from sticky splatters and grimy build-up. And if your Polywood shutters start to look a bit dull, they’re very easy to clean.

Their durable, broad louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than cleaning fragile blinds. And you won’t have the annoyance of taking them down for laundering and ironing like when you clean drapes. If your shutters have tougher soil, a slightly wet cloth and light scrubbing will serve well. And don’t worry about ruining their finish. That resilient coating is moisture-resistant and won’t rub off on your cloth.
