The Best Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Honolulu

December 16, 2021

Dogs adore looking out your windows and napping in the sun, but they can be tough on window treatmentsalso. They swipe at them, gnaw them, and bring them down. While no window covering is 100% unbreakable, faux-wood shutters are the top dog-proof window treatments in Honolulu. These durable shutters will not crumble easily, wipe down without effort, and give each member of your family--slobbery ones too--many ways to get light, privacy, and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Honolulu

Coverings like window shades, curtains, and blinds look lovely in your place, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is one tug from your pup to pull them to the ground or ruin them. Polywood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments for Honolulu families, because of their durability. They have reliable faux-wood panels that are set to a frame on your window opening and won’t hang down like curtains or drapery or break with the slightest jostle like blinds. They don’t have cords for your pooch to chew on or get tangled in either. Fifi can swipe at your shutters and rub its back against the louvers all she can without hurting them. And if your pooch tries to eat a louver, that one louver can be swapped out without needing to replace the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Pooch Look Outside

Every furry friend likes to look outside, but you don’t want outsiders peeking in at you. Polywood shutters have solid louvers that you tilt open just a bit to get your furry friend a look outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters can be custom-crafted to work with odd windows like door windows and sidelights. If your canine paws at the window when the doorbell rings, put up Polywood shutters so that it can find out if it’s a friend or foe ringing the bell.

You can control energy-efficiency with Polywood shutters also. If you need to keep an area dim and comfortable at the sunniest part of the day, but MacLeash wants to lie in the sun, tilt the louvers down to aim your sunbeams towards the ground. Or ask for shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This set up allows you open the lower louvers for your dog and keep the higher ones shut to block glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up Pet Hair And Nose Prints Easy

Like other rugs and furniture, window coverings collect dog fur and dander. You can try many methods to clean up, but cleaning Polywood shutters is fairly easy. Just wipe them with a static duster or dish cloth, and they’ll remain pet dander-free. If you sind dirty nose smudges or paw prints on your shutters, a damp rag works great. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pooch comes in from the rain and shakes all over the place, or your curious dog slobbers on your shutters, just wipe them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Mended Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are amazingly durable but not undestroyable. If Barkly uses your louvers as a chew toy, he might leave some dents. Luckily, Polywood shutters are easy to mend. Different from a busted window shade or mangled blinds that need to be completely replaced, you can call Sunburst Shutters Honolulu to swap out separate shutter louvers. You’ll still use your Polywood shutters while you wait, and as we replace the louver, your shutters will feel new.
