One of the main purposes of windows is to let natural daylight into your home. This can brighten up small rooms and make them look bigger. It bears pointing out, however, too much daylight can be harmful to your furniture and carpets.
If left unregulated, the sun’s rays can cause fading or discoloration in your valuables. Factors that cause fading in Portland, OR replacement windows include:
● Chemical reactions – This reaction depends on the coloring agent in the material and different environmental factors such as ambient chemical environment, temperature, and humidity.
● Ultraviolet (UV) radiation – Among the three spectrums of light, this causes the most damage to your furniture. This accounts for up to 45% of discoloration, whereas infrared light and visible light cause 25% of damage each.
Most homeowners want larger windows that bring in light, but this can also mean damage to different valuables. Window treatments can be a costly solution, and can create darker, smaller rooms.
