The Smart Choice To Help Black Out Your Windows In Orlando

June 16, 2021

Off-the-shelf ”blackout” window coverings advertise complete light control, which keeps your space private, dark, and insulated. However, they won’t match your exact window measurements as sunlight sneaks in at the sides. Instead, try customized roller shades or interior shutters to black out windows in Orlando. Custom-crafted roller shades can be thick enough and will be made for a precise fit to ensure darkness, while Polywood shutters insulate windows.

Custom Roller Shades Keep the Light Out

If your goal is to black out windows in Orlando for darkness or privacy, install made-to-order room-darkening roller shades. These window treatments can be made with a sturdy, non-transparent material with an opaque color or pattern to prevent all sunlight from entering.  If you get customized roller shades, your Sunburst rep will get exact measurements and ensure the new treatments fit perfectly within your window frame to avoid any gaps around the edges. As you lower your shades, they will totally cover the window opening and keep the exterior light from entering.

Installing customized room darkening roller shades also helps insulate your windows. A dark color and precision fit help keep out the sun’s warmth and winter’s chilly drafts. You’ll feel warmer in winter and more tolerable during hotter months with your dark inducing shades, and you could see some savings on energy expenses.

Roller shades are good looking as well. The word “blackout” isn’t an indication of the shade’s color. Blackout roller shades come in a range of colors and in various designs to match your decor. With a heavy roller shade, you get a window covering that is both stylish and effective. Blackout roller shades provide an appealing method to keep out sunlight when an absence of light is required for resting, watching TV, or to improve the comfort of a space.

Interior Shutters Reduce Utility Bills

Most people want to upgrade thier window coverings in Orlando to improve efficiency. limiting hot sunshine and cold air that comes through windows is good for your home’s comfort and energy use. Blackout blinds and window shades composed of thick materials can help you do this, but Polywood® shutters are often more effective. They have patented weatherstripping on all sides that provides more effective insulation than most other options. When closing your sturdy interior shutters, this insulating system keeps out the blazing summer heat and the cold of winter. Your home’s furnace and AC will get a bit of a break, while your home stays a comfortable temperature without a high utility bill.

Polywood shutters are effective in keeping out sunlight as well. They won’t get tangled with a simple nudge or bump like other, more lightweight materials because they’re constructed of a hard material. Each installation is carefully sized for your exact window opening. There is limited space along the perimeter for sunlight to peek through like you get with store-bought blinds and window shades. The smartly designed louvers are even made to fall into place together and allow just a shred of exterior light after they’re closed.
