Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Boise?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments are in sunlight all day, so it’s no surprise when they start to fade or yellow. You have to replace your window treatments when they do this because they will gradually look more unattractive over time. For longer-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Boise, try Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters never fade or yellow in the sun so you can put them in your sunniest window sills with no worries. They also will not get stained by grime or water damage, making them appropriate for any room in your home.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In The Sun

Most window treatments fade in Boise if subjected to UV rays. The sun affect materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, ruining the nice appearance of your window coverings. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade with time too, which is why even cheap window blinds yellow in your windows. The one way around this is using window coverings that are made of UV-resistant materials, like Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are interior shutters that have louvers and are made from durable, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically bonds to the faux wood to avoid discoloration and damage from sunlight. While the sun bleaches or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun forever and never fade or turn yellow. They remain a elegant, pristine white that always matches your decor.

Polywood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in Boise, humidity and water can also discolor window treatments. Fabric and wood treatments can both experience water stains and additional damage if you aren’t careful. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, use Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist harm from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they never develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

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 sticky fingerprints and dirt build-up. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do start to look a little dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their iconic, wide louvers make dusting shutters less time-consuming than cleaning flimsy blinds. And you’ll never have the bother of taking them down, laundering, and ironing them like when cleaning drapes. If your shutters have tougher grime, a damp cloth and a little rubbing will do. And don’t worry about rubbing off their finish. That hardy paint resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
