The Top Dog-Proof Window Treatments For San Antonio

December 16, 2021

Dogs love gazing out the windows and sleeping in a sunbeam, but dogs can be tough on window treatments too. They swipe at them, bite them, and tear them down. While no window covering is 100% unbreakable, faux-wood Polywood® shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments in San Antonio. These beautiful interior shutters will not come down easily, clean quickly, and give each member of your family--slobbery ones included--several ways to enjoy privacy, natural light and the view outside.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In San Antonio

Window treatments like window shades, blinds, and curtains look fine in your house, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is a single pull from your furry friend to pull them to the ground or damage them. Polywood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments for San Antonio families, thanks to their resilience. They have reliable faux-wood panels that are set to the frame surrounding your window opening and won’t swing down like curtains or shades or bend with a little jolt like blinds. Interior shutters don’t have strings or cords for your pup to bite on or get wrapped up in either. Fido can paw at your shutters and rub its back against them all she wants without hurting them. And if your pooch makes a chew toy out of a louver, that single louver can be swapped out without needing to taking down the entire covering.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Animal Look Outside

Every dog needs to look outdoors, but you don’t want neighbors peeping into your living room. Polywood shutters feature large louvers that you tilt open just to give your pooch enough room to see outside without sacrificing your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to work with odd windows like door windows and sidelights. If your dog swipes at the front window when someone comes to the door, install Polywood shutters so that she can find out if it’s a friend or stranger on your porch.

You will manage energy-efficiency with Polywood shutters also. If you need to make an area dim and cool during the warmest time of the day, but Fluffy enjoys lying in a sunbeam, tilt the louvers and aim your sunbeams to the rug. Or install shutters that feature a divider rail. This option allows you use the bottom louvers for the pooch and keep the higher ones shut to stop harsher light.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning A Snap

Like other surfaces, window coverings can be covered with dog hair and dander. You can use many tricks to clean up, but dusting Polywood shutters is very straightforward. Just swipe them with a static duster or cloth, and they’ll be free of pet hair. If you find grubby nose smudges or paw prints on a shutter panel, a wet rag works just fine. As for wet messes, Polywood shutters happen to be moisture-resistant. If your pooch runs in from hazardous weather and shakes off the fur, or your rambunctious dog salivates on your treatments, just pat them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are defintely hardy but not . If Barkly sees your louvers as a chew bone, he might create some chaos. Luckily, Polywood shutters are simple to mend. Unlike a torn window shade or broken blinds that will need to be thrown away, you can contact Sunburst Shutters San Antonio to swap out individual shutter louvers. You’ll be able to use your Polywood shutters in the meantime, and as we replace the louver, your coverings will look new.
