Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In San Jose?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments hang in direct UV rays all day, so it’s no wonder when they begin to fade or yellow. You have to buy new window treatments in that case because they will become worse over time. For more enduring window treatments that won’t fade in San Jose, use Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters don’t 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 grime, making them suitable for every window in your home.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In Sunny San Jose Windows

Most window treatments fade in San Jose when subjected to strong UV rays. Sunlight wash out materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, spoiling the attractive look of your window coverings. UV rays can cause many materials to weaken with time too, and that’s why even budget white window blinds yellow in your windows. The one way around this is to use window treatments like Polywood shutters that are made from UV-resistant materials.

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 discoloration and damage from UV rays. While UV rays fade or discolor other window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in direct sunlight for decades and never fade or turn yellow. They stay a gorgeous, pristine white that always blends in 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 San Jose, water and humidity can discolor window coverings too. Fabric and wood treatments can both get water stains and mold damage if you aren’t careful. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, choose Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist deterioration from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t soak into their faux-wood material, so they don’t get water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Stains And Dirt Can’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can stain most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their outstanding finish avoids staining from grimy build-up and sticky fingerprints. And if your Polywood shutters begin to look a bit gray, they’re very easy to clean.

Their durable, broad louvers make dusting your shutters easier than cleaning fragile blinds. And you’ll never have the annoyance of taking them down for laundering and ironing like when cleaning drapes. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a slightly wet cloth and gentle rubbing will do. And you don’t have to worry about ruining their finish. That tough coating is moisture-resistant and won’t come off on your cloth.
