Why Are Shutters the Most Sought After Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. Chances are they will deteriorate over time with the strings snapping and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. Not to mention, they are difficult to clean. Shades offer an assortment of colors and unique patterns, changing your window into artwork. Just by pulling up the fabric of the shade, your entire window is exposed and you can see out onto your Tampa neighborhood. Draperies also offer a wide spectrum of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional choice for a window treatment. Installing thick panels between the drapes and the window allows for light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, there’s no rush to clean draperies for five years. If you’re looking for a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you money on your energy bills, and looks beautiful on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also exquisite and energy efficient. Actually, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. That’s energy savings you can’t get with any other window treatment. When it comes to control over privacy and light, plantation shutters are unmatched. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your room a clean in vogue feel whether they’re closed or open.
