Your Favorite Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Charlotte

December 16, 2021

Your canine friends live for looking out the windows and napping in a sunbeam, but pups can be rough on window treatmentsalso. They paw at them, chew them, and rip them down. While no treatment is 100% indestructible, faux-wood Polywood® shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments in Charlotte. These durable louvered shutters will not come down easily, clean without effort, and bring each member of your family--slobbery ones too--several ways to get natural light, privacy and the outside views.

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

Coverings like window shades, blinds, and curtains look fine in your place, but with their hanging fabric, all it takes is one tug from your dog to bring them to the ground or ruin them. Polywood shutters are great dog-proof window treatments for Charlotte families, thanks to their longevity. They have solid Polywood panels that attach to the frame around your window and don’t dangle down like shades and curtains or snap with the slightest bump like blinds. They don’t have wands or cords for your dog to chew on or get entangled in either. Fido can paw at your interior shutters and rub its back against them all she wants without breaking them. And if your dog chews a louver, that single louver can be replaced without needing to taking down the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Allow Your Dog See Outside

Every furry friend likes to see out the window, but you don’t want outsiders peeping in your house. Polywood shutters have large louvers that you can tilt open just enough to get your furry friend enough room to see outside without forfeiting your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to fit shaped windows like door windows and sidelights. If your dog swipes at the side window when the doorbell rings, put up Polywood shutters so that it can check if it’s a barkable stranger up to no good.

You are able to manage natural light with Polywood shutters also. If you need to keep a space dim and comfortable during the warmest time of the day, but Fluffy wants to lie in a sunbeam, move the louvers and aim sunlight towards the floor. Or install shutters with a divider rail. This option allows you open the lower louvers for your dog and keep the higher ones shut to block glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning After Your Dog A Snap

Like other surfaces, window treatments collect dog fur and dander. You can use many methods to clean, but cleaning Polywood shutters is very straightforward. Just wipe them with a feather duster or rag, and they’ll be pet dander-free. If you find grubby foot prints or nose smudges on a louver, a damp rag works perfectly fine. As for wet messes, Polywood shutters happen to be moisture-resistant. If your pup walks in from the rain and shakes himself dry, or your rambunctious pup salivates on your interior shutters, just wipe them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Fixed Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are defintely solid but not undestroyable. If Barkly uses your Polywood shutters as a chew toy, he could leave some dents. Luckily, Polywood shutters are easy to mend. Different from a torn window shade or tangled blinds that will need to be taken down, you can get a hold of Sunburst Shutters Charlotte to mend individual shutter louvers. You’ll still use your Polywood shutters in the meantime, and once we replace the louver, your shutters will look like new.
