Ideal Awning Window Treatments In New Brunswick

June 20, 2022

Awning windows in New Brunswick can prove difficult to shield while still taking advantage of their benefits. They use a hinge above the glass and open from the lower end when you manipulate a crank. You typically see them higher in a room than most window types and in humid rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where you require extra ventilation. They are also typically longer in width than height.

Adaptable Polywood® plantation shutters are uniquely suited to the demands of awning window treatments in New Brunswick. They open and close effortlessly, fit the different dimensions of awning windows, and resist water damage. Explore why Polywood shutters are your top pick for awning window treatments.

Polywood Shutters Are Easy To Use On Awning Windows

Awning windows are designed to offer lots of light and airflow, so you wouldn’t install window treatments that inhibit that. Polywood shutters have various means to adjust natural light, ventilation, and privacy. You are able to swing open their full panels of slats to the sides when you desire complete light or a breath of wind from your awning windows or you might shift their louvers for your preferred amount of sun. When your awning windows are higher up your walls, the sun’s rays might infiltrate at a tricky angle. Louvers can divert light if it generates glare on a TV or shines in your eyes.

In the case where your awning windows are further up the wall, shutters will continue to be easy to operate. You don’t have to stretch to the upper portion of the window to move them like you do with other window coverings. Simply adjust the panels and louvers by grabbing the tilt rod from wherever you have access to. Shutters don’t function with cords that can get stuck and wrap around your crank mechanism either!

Polywood Shutters Accommodate Unique Awning Windows For Great Insulation

Because awning windows are often more wide than tall, you likely won’t be able to purchase off-the-shelf products that match them correctly. You should choose customized louvered shutters instead. The outer enclosure is constructed around your window’s precise measurements to ensure a flawless fit. This precise workmanship is more appealing and prevents gaps for light or breezes to slip through. The panels can even be designed to accommodate your awning window crank, so you can easily access it.

Polywood shutters include the added advantage of exclusive weatherstripping that further insulates your windows if you close them. This insulating quality aids in keeping the space at a comfortable temperature and reduces your energy expenses.

Polywood Shutters Won’t Crack Or Warp From Moisture

You’ll often see New Brunswick awning windows in bathrooms and kitchens for extra airflow. Unfortunately, the constant wet conditions and higher heat in these rooms may destroy traditional window treatments. This isn’t a problem with Polywood shutters! The composite wood and strong outer finish doesn’t warp, crack, or discolor from the humid environment. You can put them on awning windows near the shower or over the kitchen sink, and they’ll stay in perfect shape for as long as you stay in the house.

Long-lasting Polywood shutters are effortless to clean, too, even when your awning windows are hard to access. Instead of detaching them to launder like curtains or trying to clean them with a vacuum attachment like shades, you can easily dust them with an protractible duster. And if your bathroom or kitchen shutters get sticky, all they need is a little clean with a moist cloth.
