How Long Do Interior Shutters Last?
The Polywood Shutter Company produces long-lasting products of high quality that aren’t easily affected by heat, humidity or wear and tear. That’s because the more durable the window treatments, the less frustration for homeowners.
Plantation shutters are far more durable than blinds because there are no cords to wear out, no wands to snap off, and no mechanisms to break. A well-constructed shutter that is properly maintained will last 50 years or more. In contrast, a well-built blind that is properly cared for will last 3 - 5 years before cords start to wear out and colors start to fade.
A low-quality, off-the-shelf blind will last only a few years before it completely deteriorates. The economical materials and paint finishes used in blinds will wear down in the sun over time, becoming brittle and yellow. Fabric shades wear out with prolonged UV and UL exposure, and the fabric becomes brittle and yellow.
Shutters are unmatched when it comes to the durability and longevity of window treatments. Because the Polywood® shutter from The Polywood Shutter Company comes with UV inhibitors in the material and the paint, it’s completely protected from damaging sun rays. Polywood will also never warp, crack, splinter, or fade. That’s why Polywood endures more than any other shutter.
When it comes to durability, Polywood shutters are the best choice. Check with your retailer for more product and warranty information.
