Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In San Diego?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments hang in harsh sun all day long, so it’s no surprise when they start to fade or discolor. You need to get new window treatments in that case because they will gradually become more unsightly with time. For long-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in San Diego, use Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters don’t fade or turn yellow in the sun so you can use them in your brightest window sills with no worries. They also won’t stain from grime or water damage, making them ideal for every window in your house.

Sturdy, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In Bright San Diego Windows

Most window treatments fade in San Diego when subjected to intense UV rays. The sun affect materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, ruining the lovely appearance of your window treatments. UV rays can make many materials deteriorate with time too, which is why even low-quality white window blinds turn yellow in the sun. The only way around this is to use window treatments like durable Polywood shutters that are made of UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are interior shutters that have louvers and are made from a durable, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically bonds to the material to prevent discoloration and damage from the sun. While the sun bleaches or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in the sun forever and never turn yellow or fade. They stay a gorgeous, clean white that always blends in with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Water Damage

While it’s true that sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in San Diego, humidity and water can also discolor window coverings. Wood and fabric treatments can both suffer from water stains and other damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, choose Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist damage from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t permeate their faux-wood material, so they never develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.
 

Stains And Dirt Can’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues 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 start to look a little gray, they’re very easy to clean.

Their durable, wide louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than cleaning loose-hanging blinds. And you won’t have the trouble of getting them to launder and iron them like when cleaning drapery. If your shutters have tougher soil, a slightly wet cloth and gentle scrubbing are enough. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That tough coating is moisture-resistant and won’t come off on your cloth.
