Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Atlanta?

February 25, 2022

Your Atlanta window treatments are in direct sun all day long, so it’s no surprise if they start to discolor or fade. You need to replace your window coverings when they do this because they will gradually look more unsightly over time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Atlanta, use Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters don’t ever fade or yellow in UV light so you can install them in your sunniest window sills with no worries. They also will not get stained by dirt or water damage, making them ideal for any area in the house.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Turn Yellow In Sunlight

Almost all window treatments fade in Atlanta if subjected to intense UV rays. The sun affect materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, spoiling your window treatments’ attractive color. UV rays can make many materials deteriorate with time as well, which is why even low-quality window blinds yellow in sunlight. The one way around this is install window treatments like durable Polywood shutters that are made from UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are interior shutters that have louvers and are made from a sturdy, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically adheres to the material to avoid discoloration and damage from UV rays. While the sun bleaches or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in the sun for decades without fading or turning yellow. They remain a lovely, clean white that always matches your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Resist Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While it’s true that the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Atlanta, water and humidity can discolor window treatments too. Wood and fabric treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like the 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 don’t develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Can’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

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

Their durable, wide louvers make dusting shutters less time-consuming than dusting loose-hanging blinds. And you’ll never have the inconvenience of taking them to launder and iron like when you clean curtains. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a damp cloth and gentle rubbing are enough. And don’t worry about rubbing off their finish. That hardy coating resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
