The Best Way To Black Out Your Windows In Atlanta

June 16, 2021

Store-bought ”blackout” window coverings advertise complete light control, allowing for both noise and light blocking. The problem is, they won’t match your windows and they still let light slip in along the product’s perimeter. Alternatively, try customized roller shades or Polywood® shutters to black out windows in Atlanta. Your customized roller shades can have a thick, dark pattern or color and will be made for a precise fit to ensure darkness, while interior shutters provide superior insulation.

Custom Roller Shades Eliminate Outside Light

If your goal is to black out windows in Atlanta for exceptional light blocking and privacy, use custom roller shades. This popular window treatment come in a thick material with an opaque color or pattern to prevent all sunlight from entering.  If you get a custom window covering, your Sunburst rep will get exact measurements and ensure the new treatments are an exact fit for your opening so that there is little to no gapping. As you lower your treatments, they will totally cover the window opening and keep the exterior light from entering.

Upgrading to made-to-order room darkening roller shades also helps insulate your windows. A dark color and perfect fit are great at blocking the hot sun and winter’s chill. You will appreciate feeling warmer in during the wintertime and more tolerable in the summertime with your new roller shades, and you could see money savings on utility bills.

Roller shades look good too. The phrase “blackout” isn’t an indication of the shade’s color. These window treatments come in colors ranging from black to white in many attractive styles and patterns. ”Blackout” fabric is thick enough to stop light. Blackout roller shades are a fashionable way to impede the sun’s rays if you need dark for resting, watching TV, or to maintain the desired comfort levels.

Plantation Shutters Are Energy-Efficient

Many homeowners are interested in enhancing their window coverings in Atlanta to improve efficiency. Preventing UV rays and chilly drafts that invades through your windows keeps your rooms at the right temperature and energy bills low. Blackout blinds and window shades made of dense, heavier materials will help to an extent, but Polywood® shutters will enhance your home even more. They utilize weatherstripping along all borders that insulates windows better than alternative window coverings. When you close your shutters, this insulating system keeps out summer’s heat and winter’s cold. Your HVAC system will get a bit of a break, while your home maintains consistent comfort levels without a high utility bill.

Polywood shutters can also be used to block light. They can’t get tangled with a slight nudge or bump like traditional blinds or curtains as they are constructed using solid, sturdy composites. All panels are customized for a precision fit within your window. They leave minimal gaps at the bottom or sides for sunshine to creep in like you typically find with ready-made shades and blinds. Even their louvers are designed to lay close against one another and allow just a shred of exterior light after they’re closed.
