The Best Awning Window Treatments In Southern California

June 20, 2022

Awning windows in Southern California can prove difficult to cover while still taking advantage of their benefits. They are hinged from above and open from below as you manipulate a crank. You typically see them closer to the ceiling than most window types and in humid rooms like baths and kitchens where you need additional ventilation. And they’re typically wider than they are tall.

Versatile Polywood® plantation shutters are perfectly equipped to the difficulties faced by awning window treatments in Southern California. They swing open and shut simply and with little effort, fit the different measurements of awning windows, and resist water damage. Explore why Polywood shutters have become your top pick for awning window treatments.

Polywood Shutters Are Easy To Use On Awning Windows

Awning windows are used to provide an abundance of sunlight and ventilation, so you can’t have window treatments that inhibit that. Polywood shutters are perfect as they offer multiple means to manage exterior light, ventilation, and privacy. You can completely open their full panels of slats away from the glass when you desire full light or fresh air from your awning windows or you might shift their louvers for your preferred amount of light. If your awning windows are closer to the ceiling, exterior light could infiltrate at a tricky angle. Slats are able to divert outdoor light if it generates glare on a reflective surface or gets in your eyes.

When your awning windows are high, shutters will continue to be a cinch to operate. You’ll never have to extend to the upper portion of the window to shut them like you would with alternative products like shades. Simply manipulate the slats and panels using the tilt rod from any place you have access to. Shutters don’t function with cords that can get stuck and wrap around your window crank either!

Polywood Shutters Adapt To Wider Awning Windows For Superior Insulation

Because awning windows are frequently greater in width than height, you probably won’t find off-the-shelf treatments that match them properly. Use custom-made plantation shutters instead. The outer enclosure is built for your window’s precise measurements to make certain you have a ideal fit. This exacting craftsmanship looks better and prevents spaces for sunlight or breezes to slip through. The installation is even able to be fitted to accommodate your awning window crank, so it’s freely accessible.

Polywood shutters have the added advantage of patented weatherstripping that enhances your window insulation when you shut them. This insulation capability aids in keeping the area at a pleasant temperature and reduces your utility costs.

Polywood Shutters Won’t Crack Or Warp From Damp Conditions

You’ll frequently find Southern California awning windows in baths or kitchens for additional ventilation. However, the wet conditions and higher heat in these spaces may ruin fabric and wood window treatments. But not Polywood shutters! The composite wood and resilient outer layer doesn’t crack, discolor, or warp from the tough conditions. You can put them on awning windows near the shower or overlooking the kitchen faucet, and they’ll be pristine for years upon end.

Long-lasting Polywood shutters are simple to clean, as well, even when your awning windows are difficult to get to. As an alternative to removing them to throw in the wash like curtains or attempting to clean them with vacuum-powered brush feature like shades, you can easily clean them with an extendable duster. If it ever happens that your bath or kitchen window shutters get sticky, all they require is a quick scrub with a dampened rag.
