What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Jacksonville?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments hang in harsh sun all day long, so it’s no wonder if they start to fade or discolor. You need to replace your window treatments when this happens because they will look worse with time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Jacksonville, utilize Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters don’t ever fade or turn yellow in UV light so you can place them in your sunniest window sills with no problem. They also won’t stain from water damage or dirt, making them appropriate for every room in your house.

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

Almost all window treatments fade in Jacksonville when exposed to strong UV rays. The sun wash out materials like fabric, plastic, and wood, spoiling your window coverings’ lovely color. UV rays can make many materials break down over time too, and that’s why even low-quality window blinds get discolored in your windows. The one way around this is using window treatments that are made of UV-resistant materials, such asdurable 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 faux wood to prevent discoloration and damage from sunlight. While UV rays bleach or discolor most window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in direct sunlight for decades without turning yellow or fading. They remain a stunning, perfect white that always goes with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture Damage

While sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in Jacksonville, humidity and water can discolor window treatments too. Wood and fabric treatments can both experience water stains and similar damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like your kitchen or bathroom, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist damage from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they don’t develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Don’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Sticky residues and dirt can discolor many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their amazing finish avoids staining from sticky fingerprints and grimy build-up. And if your Polywood shutters begin to look a bit dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their sturdy, wide louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than cleaning fragile blinds. And you’ll never have the inconvenience of taking them down for laundering and ironing like when you clean curtains. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a moist cloth and light scrubbing will suffice. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That hardy coating resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
