The right window treatment protects floors from sun damage

 
They’re often an afterthought but shouldn’t be. The right window treatment will protect floors and furnishings from sun and heat. You'll find an assortment of drapes, curtains, shades, and shutters in any store.

One of the things we’re most proud of at H & R Carpet is that our customers often come back time and again. Two phrases we hear frequently are great service and experienced installers.

We have a fully stocked flooring inventory and provide services such as installation.

The windows are often considered not as important when designing a room. Some floors are prone to fading, so the right window treatment guarantees the protection of your investment.

Our showroom is in West, TX and we service Waco, Hillsboro, West, Whitney, and Corsicana. Be sure to ask us about a free quote.
 
 
 
 
 

Controlling room temperature

 
It’s not the window but, rather, the kinds of treatment that affect a room's comfort level.

For example, tile is an excellent heat conductor and there’s nothing better when it’s hot out than to stand on the floor in bare feet. Your whole body feels cool, but it can also work the other way. Anyone who’s ever stepped on a tiled outdoor floor knows that.

When the window is properly covered, the room will stay cool.

Other problems caused by sun and heat

 
  • Fading and changing color: carpet, vinyl, and hardwood are especially susceptible. Hardwood discolors and you might even see dark spots. Vinyl, when exposed to direct sunlight, turns yellow. Carpet just dims and loses color and pattern vibrancy.
  • Hardwood moves-Solid wood swells in heat and humidity, and we know there can be a lot of sun and heat in Texas. As a result, unless it’s acclimated before installation, the wood boards can overlap with the edges turning up and forming a cup shape. It can also crown when the middle of the floor becomes higher than the edges. The boards will do anything to make room!

Not to mention that humidity and moisture can start the growth of mold or form little moisture pockets in the wall that result in peeling and flaking.
 

You can protect them even when not home

 
The sun’s strongest during mid-afternoon. If you’re away from the home, say, at work, no worries because a lot of window treatments can be motorized, or Alexa integrated. We encourage you to stop by our showroom today and see our selection!
