Why Are Shutters the Most Sought After Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. They tend to deteriorate over time with the strings snapping and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. And they are difficult to clean. Shades offer an assortment of colors and unique patterns, changing your window into artwork. By effortlessly pulling up the fabric of the shade, your entire window is exposed and you can see out onto your Sacramento neighborhood. Draperies also come in a wide variety of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional alternative for a window treatment. Adding thick panels between the drapes and the window allows for light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, there’s no rush to clean draperies for five years. If you want a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you actual bucks on your energy bills, and looks magnificent on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also beautiful 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 will miss out on with any other window treatment. When it comes to control over privacy and light, plantation shutters are unmatched. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your space a clean modern feel whether they’re closed or open.
