February 25, 2022

Your Raleigh window treatments hang in direct sun all day long, so it’s no wonder when they begin to discolor or fade.

These wood substitute plantation shutters don’t ever fade or turn yellow in the sun so you can use them in your sunniest window without a worry. They also don’t stain from dirt or water damage, making them appropriate for every area in your home.

Sturdy, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Turn Yellow In Sunlight

Almost all window treatments fade in Raleigh if subjected to penetrating UV rays. Sunlight affect materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, ruining the attractive look of your window treatments. UV rays can cause many materials to break down with time as well, which is why even cheap white window blinds yellow in sunlight. The only way around this is install window treatments like faux-wood Polywood shutters that are made of UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from long-lasting, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically bonds to the faux wood to prevent damage and discoloration from sunlight. While the sun fades or discolors most window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun forever and never fade or turn yellow. They remain a elegant, pristine white that always blends in with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in Raleigh, humidity and water can also discolor window coverings. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the bathroom or kitchen, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist damage from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they never get water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Dirt And Stains Don’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can stain many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their amazing finish resists discoloration from grimy build-up and sticky splatters. And if your Polywood shutters start to look a bit dingy, they’re effortless to clean.

Their durable, broad louvers make dusting shutters easier than dusting loose-hanging blinds. And you won’t have the annoyance of getting them down, laundering, and ironing them like when cleaning drapes. If your interior shutters have more stubborn grime, a damp cloth and light scrubbing will do. And you don’t have to worry about wiping off their finish. That hardy paint is moisture-resistant and won’t come off on your cloth.
