Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Boston?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments are in UV rays all day long, so it’s no wonder if they begin to discolor or fade. You have to purchase new window coverings when this happens because they will gradually get more discolored with time. For longer-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Boston, utilize Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters never fade or yellow in the sun so you can install them in your brightest window with no worries. They also won’t get stained from grime or water damage, making them ideal for every window of your abode.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In Bright Boston Windows

Almost all window treatments fade in Boston when subjected to powerful UV rays. Sunlight affect materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, ruining your window coverings’ nice color. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade over time too, and that’s why even cheap window blinds get discolored in sunlight. The best way around this is install window treatments that are made from UV-resistant materials, such as faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from long-lasting, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically adheres to the material to prevent damage and discoloration from UV rays. While UV rays bleach or discolor other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in direct sunlight forever and never fade or turn yellow. They remain a gorgeous, perfect white that always matches your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Water Damage

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Boston, water and humidity can discolor window coverings too. Wood and fabric treatments can both get water staining and additional damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like the kitchen or bathroom, choose Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist harm from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t permeate their faux-wood material, so they won’t develop water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Dirt And Stains Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

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

Their durable, broad louvers make dusting your shutters easier than dusting flimsy blinds. And you’ll never have the frustration of taking them down for laundering and ironing like when you clean drapes. If your faux-wood shutters have more stubborn grime, a moist cloth and light scrubbing will suffice. And don’t worry about ruining their finish. That resilient paint resists moisture and won’t come off on your cloth.
