What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Houston?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments are in sunlight all day long, so it’s no wonder when they begin to discolor or fade. You have to replace your window treatments in that case because they will get more discolored over time. For long-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Houston, try Polywood® shutters. These durable plantation shutters never fade or yellow in UV light so you can place them in your brightest window sills without a worry. They also won’t stain from water damage or dirt, making them appropriate for any area in your abode.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Turn Yellow In Sunlight

Most window treatments fade in Houston when exposed to powerful UV rays. Sunlight affect materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, ruining your window coverings’ color. UV rays can cause many materials to weaken over time too, which is why even budget white window blinds yellow in your windows. The best way around this is install window treatments like durable Polywood shutters that have UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from sturdy, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically bonds to the material to resist damage and discoloration from the sun. While UV rays fade or discolor other window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun forever and never fade or turn yellow. They remain a stunning, clean white that always blends in with your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Houston, humidity and water can also discolor window treatments. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water stains and other damage if you aren’t careful. If you require window treatments in humid environments like your kitchen or bathroom, choose Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist harm from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t soak into their faux-wood material, so they don’t develop water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Dirt And Stains Don’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Sticky residues and dirt can stain most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their exceptional finish resists staining from dirt build-up and sticky fingerprints. And if your Polywood shutters start to look a bit dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their iconic, wide louvers make dusting shutters easier than cleaning loose-hanging blinds. And you’ll never have the frustration of getting them down, laundering, and ironing them like when you clean curtains. If your interior shutters have more stubborn grime, a slightly wet cloth and gentle scrubbing will serve well. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That strong coating is moisture-resistant and won’t come off on your cloth.
