Your Favorite Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Miami

December 16, 2021

Puppies adore peering out the window and snoozing in sunlight, but they can be rough on window treatments. They swipe at them, gnaw them, and rip them down. While no window treatment is completely indestructible, faux-wood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments in Miami. These faux-wood interior shutters don’t come down easily, clean up without effort, and give every member of your family--furry ones included--different ways to get privacy, natural light and the view outside.

Polywood Shutters Are Long-Lasting Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Miami

Coverings like window shades, blinds, and curtains look nice in your home, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is a good tug from your pup to pull them down or break them. Polywood shutters are great dog-proof window treatments for Miami homes, thanks to their resilience. They have dependable Polywood panels that link to a frame surrounding your window and don’t dangle down like shades and curtains or bend with a little jostle like aluminum blinds. Interior shutters don’t have cords for your pooch to chew on or get entangled in either. Fifi can swipe at your shutters and rub its back against the louvers all she wants without breaking them. And if your dog tries to eat a louver, that one louver can be replaced without having to taking down the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Allow Your Dog See Outside

Every dog likes to see outdoors, but you don’t want passersby looking in your house. Polywood shutters use wide louvers that you can tilt open just enough to get your dog a peek outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to fit specialty windows like picture windows and sidelights. If your dog swipes at the window when someone comes to the door, install Polywood shutters so that she can check if it’s a friend or stranger up to no good.

You will direct energy-efficiency with Polywood shutters also. If you want to keep an area dim and comfortable during the hottest time of the day, but Fluffy likes to lie in the sun, move the louvers and direct the sun at the floor. Or install shutters featuring a divider rail. This option lets you open the lower louvers for the dog and keep the higher louvers closed to block glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog Easy

Like all your surfaces, window treatments can be covered with dog fur and dander. You can attempt many tricks to dust them off, but dusting Polywood shutters is very simple. Just swipe them with a dry duster or dish cloth, and they’ll become pet dander-free. If you discover grubby nose smudges or paw prints on a shutter panel, a wet rag works great. As for wet messes, Polywood shutters happen to be moisture-resistant. If your pooch comes in from the rain or snow and shakes all over the place, or your rambunctious dog slobbers on your treatments, just scrub them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Mended Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are amazingly solid but not undestroyable. If Barkly uses your shutters as a bone, he could create some marks. Luckily, Polywood shutters are simple to mend. Not like a torn window shade or broken blinds that need to be thrown away, you can contact Sunburst Shutters Miami to replace single shutter louvers. You’ll still use your shutters as usual, and after we replace the louver, your coverings will look like new.
