Interior shutters have become popular among homeowners seeking a classic, polished look for their windows. Faux wood and vinyl shutters offer the same light control, privacy, and insulation as standard shutters and blinds but with additional benefits. The window shutters in Narberth, PA carry Hunter Douglas premium quality faux wood shutters and would love to show you how they can improve the aesthetic and functionality of your windows.
Because wood is a natural material, it is more susceptible to deterioration over time. Even when treated to increase durability, hardwood shutters lack the interior aluminum bracing of Palm Beach poly satin vinyl shutters. This employs interlocking components far more durable than traditional glue and dowel construction.
Water is wood’s kryptonite. Moisture damage to hardwood, such as warping, peeling, and cracking, is common. Faux wood shutters are water resistant, making them an excellent choice for bathrooms and kitchens. These shutters can also be deep cleaned safely using moist methods.
Scratch Free Materials
Water is one of the many ways wood shutters can deteriorate over time. Hardwood, especially when older, will show hairline and deeper scratches. If you have children or pets, scratched wood becomes almost a guarantee. NewStyle hybrid shutters have a low-luster finish that closely resembles wood without the risk of surface damage.
Synthetic Materials Combined With Wood
Continuous sunlight exposure will fade your wood shutters over time. Palm Beach poly satin vinyl shutters are completely UV resistant and backed by the Palm Beach promise. Because composite shutters combine synthetic and natural materials, they are less likely to fade over time.
There’s no denying that hardwood is beautiful, but it’s also heavier than vinyl or composite shutters. Because faux wood shutters are lighter than wood, they are easier to install on any window in your home.
Faux wood shutters have more control options than hardwood shutters.
