What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Tampa?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments are in harsh UV rays all day long, so it’s no surprise when they begin to fade or discolor. You have to get new window treatments in that case because they will gradually look more unattractive with time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Tampa, use Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters never fade or yellow in the sun so you can use them in your brightest window with no problem. They also don’t stain from water damage or grime, making them suitable for every area of the house.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In Sunny Tampa Windows

Most window treatments fade in Tampa when exposed to penetrating UV rays. Sunlight affect materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, spoiling the lovely appearance of your window coverings. UV rays can make many materials deteriorate over time as well, and that’s why even low-quality white window blinds turn yellow in your windows. The best way to avoid this is install window treatments like faux-wood Polywood shutters that have UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are interior shutters that have louvers and are made from sturdy, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically adheres to the faux wood to prevent damage and discoloration from the sun. While the sun fades or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in direct sunlight forever without turning yellow or fading. They remain a lovely, perfect white that always blends in with your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Moisture Damage

While sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in Tampa, water and humidity can also discolor window treatments. 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, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist harm from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they won’t get water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Stains And Dirt Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Sticky residues and dirt can stain many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their outstanding finish avoids staining from sticky splatters and dirt build-up. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do begin to look a little dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their durable, wide louvers make dusting shutters less time-consuming than cleaning flimsy blinds. And you won’t have the frustration of taking them to launder and iron them like when cleaning drapery. If your shutters have more stubborn grime, a moist cloth and light scrubbing are enough. And you don’t have to worry about rubbing off their finish. That tough paint resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
