What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Hartford?

February 25, 2022

Your Hartford window treatments are in sun all day, so it’s no wonder if they start to fade or discolor. You have to replace your window treatments in that case because they will become more unsightly with time. For long-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Hartford, utilize Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters never fade or turn yellow in sunlight so you can put them in your brightest window without a worry. They also won’t get stained from water damage or dirt, making them perfect for every window in your house.

Sturdy, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Turn Yellow In Bright Hartford Windows

Most window treatments fade in Hartford when exposed to UV rays. The sun bleaches materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, ruining the lovely appearance of your window treatments. UV rays can make many materials break down with time too, which is why even low-quality window blinds turn yellow in your windows. The best way around this is using window treatments that are made of UV-resistant materials, such as Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from a durable, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically adheres to the material to prevent discoloration and damage from UV rays. While UV rays bleach or discolor most window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in direct sunlight for decades and never fade or turn yellow. They stay a stunning, pristine white that always goes with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Hartford, water and humidity can also discolor window treatments. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water stains and similar damage if you don’t take care. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist deterioration from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t soak into their faux-wood material, so they never develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Sticky residues and dirt can discolor most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their exceptional finish avoids staining from dirt build-up and sticky fingerprints. And if your Polywood shutters begin to look a little gray, they’re effortless to clean.

Their durable, broad louvers make dusting your shutters easier than cleaning fragile blinds. And you’ll never have the inconvenience of getting them to launder and iron like when cleaning drapes. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher grime, a slightly wet cloth and gentle rubbing will serve well. And don’t worry about ruining their finish. That strong coating is moisture-resistant and won’t rub off on your cloth.
