What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Phoenix?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments hang in sun all day long, so it’s no wonder when they start to fade or discolor. You have to replace your window treatments in that case because they will gradually become more unattractive over time. For longer-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Phoenix, try Polywood® shutters. These durable plantation shutters never fade or yellow in the sun so you can put them in your sunniest window without a worry. They also won’t get stained by water damage or dirt, making them suitable for every area of the house.

Sturdy, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Turn Yellow In The Sun

Most window treatments fade in Phoenix when subjected to penetrating UV rays. Sunlight bleaches materials like fabric, plastic, and wood, spoiling your window treatments’ nice color. UV rays can cause many materials to degrade with time too, and that’s why even cheap aluminum window blinds turn yellow in the sun. The only way around this is to use window treatments like Polywood shutters that are made from UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from a long-lasting, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically bonds to the material to avoid damage and discoloration from UV rays. While the sun bleaches or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun for decades and never fade or turn yellow. They stay a gorgeous, pristine white that always matches your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While it’s true that the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Phoenix, humidity and water can also discolor window coverings. Wood and fabric treatments can both get water staining and similar damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, choose Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist deterioration from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water doesn’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they don’t get water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Dirt And Stains Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can discolor many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their amazing finish resists discoloration from dirt build-up and sticky splatters. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do start to look a little dull, they’re effortless to clean.

Their iconic, wide louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than dusting loose-hanging blinds. And you’ll never have the inconvenience of getting them to launder and iron like when cleaning drapery. If your shutters have more stubborn grime, a damp cloth and light scrubbing are enough. And don’t worry about rubbing off their finish. That resilient coating is moisture-resistant and won’t come off on your cloth.
