The Best Awning Window Treatments In Phoenix

June 20, 2022

Awning windows in Phoenix are known to be difficult to cover while still enjoying their benefits. They are hinged above the glass and open from below when you operate a crank. You frequently see them higher in a room than other windows and in high humidity areas like kitchens and bathrooms where you need extra ventilation. You will also find they’re generally longer in width than height.

Adaptable Polywood® plantation shutters are uniquely suited to the demands of awning window treatments in Phoenix. They move easily, accommodate the unusual sizes of awning windows, and are resistant to moisture. Here’s why Polywood shutters have become your preferred option in awning window treatments.

Polywood Shutters Are Easy To Use On Awning Windows

Awning windows are designed to bring your home lots of natural light and airflow, so you can’t have window treatments that inhibit that. Polywood shutters are perfect as they offer various means to manage natural light, circulation, and privacy. You can completely open their panels away from the glass if you want full light or fresh air from your awning windows or you might shift their louvers for a little illumination. Whenever your awning windows are closer to the ceiling, exterior light may enter at an awkward angle. Louvers can shift light if it creates glare on a TV or bothers your eyes.

If your awning windows are further up the wall, shutters will continue to be simple to adjust. You don’t have to extend to the upper portion of the window to shut them like you have to with alternative products like shades. Just manipulate the slats and panels by grabbing the tilt rod from any spot you can. Shutters don’t have cords that will get stuck and wrap around your crank mechanism either!

Polywood Shutters Adapt To Wide Awning Windows For Superior Insulation

Since awning windows are often greater in width than height, you probably won’t locate ready-made blinds that fit them correctly. You’re better off choosing hand-designed louvered shutters instead. Their frame is built for your window’s specific measurements to ensure a perfect fit. This exacting workmanship is more attractive and prevents spaces for sunlight or air to get through. The installation is even able to be customized to accommodate your awning window cranking mechanism, so it's easily usable.

Polywood shutters have the added benefit of innovative weatherstripping that further insulates your windows when you shut them. This insulation capability assists in keeping the room at a comfortable temperature and reduces your utility bills.

Polywood Shutters Are Resilient Against Damp Conditions

You’ll frequently notice Phoenix awning windows in bathrooms and kitchens for added air circulation. However, the wet conditions and higher heat in these areas has the ability to destroy traditional window treatments. But not Polywood shutters! Their faux substance and tough exterior coating doesn’t warp, crack, or discolor from the humid environment. You can place them on awning windows next to the shower or above the kitchen sink, and they’ll remain pristine for as long as you stay in the house.

Long-lasting Polywood shutters are simple to clean, as well, even if your awning windows are difficult to access. As an alternative to taking them down to throw in the wash like cloth materials or attempting to clean them with a brush attachment for your vacuum like shades, just clean them with an protractible duster. And if your kitchen or bathroom shutters become grimy, all they require is a little scrub with a damp rag.
