Why Are Shutters the Most Sought After Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. They are susceptible to deteriorating over time with the strings breaking and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. In addition, they are difficult to clean. Shades offer an array of colors and unique patterns, changing your window into artwork. Just by pulling up the fabric of the shade, your entire window is exposed and you can see out onto your Orlando neighborhood. Draperies also come in a wide assortment of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional option for a window treatment. Placing thick panels between the drapes and the window gives you light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, you won’t have to clean draperies for five years. If you’re looking for a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you money on your energy bills, and looks lovely on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also charming and energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. That’s energy savings you can’t get with any other window treatment. Plantation shutters are unparalleled when it comes to control over privacy and light. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your house a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
