What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Miami?

February 25, 2022

Your Miami window treatments hang in direct UV rays all day, so it’s no wonder if they begin to discolor or fade. You have to replace your window treatments when they do this because they will look more unsightly with time. For long-lasting window treatments that won’t fade in Miami, utilize Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters don’t fade or yellow in the sun so you can place them in your brightest window sills without a worry. They also don’t get stained from water damage or dirt, making them appropriate for any window in your abode.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Turn Yellow In Bright Miami Windows

Almost all window treatments fade in Miami when subjected to strong UV rays. The sun affect materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, ruining your window treatments’ color. UV rays can make many materials degrade over time as well, which is why even budget white window blinds get discolored in your windows. The best way to avoid this is using window treatments that are made of UV-resistant materials, like Polywood shutters.

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

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While it’s true that the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Miami, water and humidity can discolor window treatments too. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you require window treatments in humid environments like your bathroom or kitchen, choose Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist damage from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t permeate their faux-wood material, so they never develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

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

Their iconic, broad louvers make dusting your shutters less time-consuming than cleaning loose-hanging blinds. And you won’t have the trouble of taking them down for laundering and ironing like when cleaning drapes. If your shutters have tougher grime, a moist cloth and light scrubbing will do. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That resilient coating resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
