The Top Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Sacramento

December 16, 2021

Your canine friends live for peering out your windows and snoozing in the sun, but pups can be tough on window treatments too. They paw at them, bite them, and bring them down. While no treatment is 100% undestroyable, faux-wood Polywood® shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments in Sacramento. These durable louvered shutters don’t crumble easily, wipe down without a problem, and give every member of your family--canines too--different methods to get natural light, privacy and the outside views.

Polywood Shutters Are Long-Lasting Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Sacramento

Window treatments like window shades, curtains, and blinds look nice in your home, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is one pull from your dog to pull them down or damage them. Polywood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments for Sacramento families, thanks to their resilience. They have reliable faux-wood panels that link to a frame surrounding your window opening and won’t hang down like curtains or drapery or bend with a little jolt like aluminum blinds. Interior shutters don’t have wands or cords for your pooch to chew on or get tangled in either. Fido can swipe at your interior shutters and rub her back against the louvers all she can without pulling them down. And if the mongrel chews a louver, that single louver can be removed and replaced without having to replace the entire covering.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Pooch See Outside

Every furry friend likes to see out the window, but you don’t want neighbors peeping into your living room. Polywood shutters have solid louvers that you can tilt open just to give your dog a peek outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to work with shaped windows like picture windows and sidelights. If your canine paws at the front window when someone comes to the door, hang Polywood shutters so that she can find out if it’s a friend or foe ringing the bell.

You are able to control sun glare with Polywood shutters too. If you want to make a space dim and cooler at the warmest part of the day, but Fluffy wants to lie in the sun, move the louvers and aim your sunbeams towards the rug. Or get shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This feature lets you use the lower louvers for your pooch and keep the top ones closed to stop harsher light.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog A Snap

Like every rugs and furniture, window coverings collect dog hair and dander. You can try many ways to dust them off, but cleaning Polywood shutters is very straightforward. Just rub them with a static duster or dish cloth, and they’ll be pet dander-free. If you sind grubby nose smudges or paw prints on a louver, a damp rag works just fine. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pooch runs in from the rain or snow and shakes all over the place, or your rambunctious pup licks your shutters, just pat them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are definately solid but not indestructible. If Barkly looks at your shutters as a bone, he could make some dents. Luckily, Polywood shutters are easy to repair. Unlike a torn window shade or broken blinds that will need to be taken down, you can contact Sunburst Shutters Sacramento to replace separate shutter louvers. You’ll be able to use your shutters as usual, and after we repair them, your coverings will look like new.
