The Best Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Seattle

December 16, 2021

Your canine friends adore peering out your windows and napping in the sun, but pups can be a beast on window treatments. They swipe at them, gnaw them, and rip them down. While no treatment is 100% indestructible, faux-wood Polywood® shutters are the top dog-proof window treatments in Seattle. These beautiful louvered shutters don’t break easily, clean without effort, and allow every member of your family--canines too--many ways to enjoy natural light, privacy and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Durable Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Seattle

Window treatments like window shades, blinds, and curtains look nice in your house, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is a good pull from your dog to take them down or ruin them. Polywood shutters are wonderful dog-proof window treatments for Seattle families, because of their resilience. They have solid Polywood panels that link to a frame around your window and won’t dangle down like shades and curtains or break with the slightest jolt like aluminum blinds. Interior shutters don’t have cords for your pooch to bite on or get tangled in either. Fifi can paw at your shutters and rub her back against them all she can without hurting them. And if your mongrel tries to eat a louver, that one louver can be replaced without needing to replace the entire covering.

Polywood Shutters Allow Your Pooch Peek Outside

Every puppy needs to look out the window, but you may not want outsiders looking in your house. Polywood shutters have large louvers that you can tilt open just a bit to give your furry friend enough room to see outside without sacrificing your privacy. Polywood shutters can be custom-crafted to work with shaped windows like arches and sidelights. If your pup swipes at the window when deliveries come, put up Polywood shutters so that she can find out if it’s a friend or foe on your porch.

You will control sun glare with Polywood shutters also. If you want to keep a space dim and comfortable at the sunniest time of the day, but MacLeash wants to lie in a sunbeam, angle the louvers to aim the sun towards the ground. Or ask for shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This feature allows you open the bottom louvers for your dog and keep the top louvers shut to prevent sun glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog Easy

Like every surfaces, window treatments attract dog fur and dander. You can attempt many tricks to clean, but dusting Polywood shutters is pretty straightforward. Just swipe them with a dry duster or dish cloth, and they’ll be pet dander-free. If you find grubby foot prints or nose smudges on a louver, a wet rag works perfectly fine. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your dog walks in from the rain or snow and shakes himself dry, or your rambunctious dog slobbers on your treatments, just pat them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Mended Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are amazingly hardy but not . If Fifi looks at your louvers as a chew toy, he might leave some marks. Luckily, Polywood shutters are straightforward to repair. Different from a busted window shade or broken blinds that will need to be thrown away, you can contact Sunburst Shutters Washington to mend individual shutter louvers. You’ll still use your Polywood shutters while you wait, and after we repair them, your shutters will feel new.
