What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Cincinnati?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments hang in UV rays all day long, so it’s no wonder if they begin to discolor or fade. You need to replace your window coverings if they do this because they will become worse over time. For more enduring window treatments that won’t fade in Cincinnati, use Polywood® shutters. These durable plantation shutters never fade or turn yellow in the sun so you can use them in your brightest window without a worry. They also don’t stain from water damage or grime, making them ideal for any room in your house.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In Bright Cincinnati Windows

Most window treatments fade in Cincinnati when exposed to UV rays. Sunlight bleaches materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, spoiling the lovely look of your window coverings. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade over time too, and that’s why even budget aluminum window blinds turn yellow in your windows. The one way to avoid this is to use window treatments like durable Polywood shutters that have UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from durable, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically adheres to the faux wood to resist discoloration and damage from the sun. While the sun bleaches or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun for decades and never turn yellow or fade. They remain a lovely, clean white that always blends in with your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture Damage

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

Stains And Dirt Can’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can stain many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their outstanding finish resists discoloration from sticky splatters and grimy build-up. And if your Polywood shutters begin to look a bit dull, they’re very easy to clean.

Their iconic, wide louvers make dusting shutters less time-consuming than dusting flimsy blinds. And you won’t have the trouble of getting them down for laundering and ironing like when cleaning drapery. If your interior shutters have more stubborn grime, a slightly wet cloth and gentle scrubbing are enough. And don’t worry about ruining their finish. That tough coating is moisture-resistant and won’t rub off on your cloth.
