Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Dallas?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments sit in harsh sunlight all day long, so it’s no surprise if they start to discolor or fade. You have to replace your window treatments in that case because they will get more unattractive with time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Dallas, utilize Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters don’t fade or turn yellow in UV light so you can place them in your sunniest window sills with no worries. They also don’t get stained by water damage or dirt, making them appropriate for every window in your abode.

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

Almost all window treatments fade in Dallas when subjected to penetrating UV rays. Sunlight wash out materials like fabric, plastic, and wood, spoiling your window treatments’ lovely color. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade with time as well, which is why even low-quality aluminum window blinds turn yellow in the sun. The only way around this is using window treatments like Polywood shutters that have UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from durable, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically adheres to the material to resist damage and discoloration from the sun. While UV rays bleach or discolor other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in the sun forever without turning yellow or fading. They stay a lovely, clean white that always goes with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While it’s true that the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Dallas, humidity and water can discolor window coverings as well. Wood and fabric treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like your bathroom or kitchen, choose Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist damage from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t permeate their faux-wood material, so they don’t develop water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Dirt And Stains Don’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can discolor most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their outstanding finish avoids discoloration from dirt build-up and sticky splatters. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do begin to look a little dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their sturdy, wide louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than dusting flimsy blinds. And you’ll never have the frustration of getting them down for laundering and ironing like when you clean curtains. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a moist cloth and gentle rubbing will do. And don’t worry about ruining their finish. That tough paint resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
