What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Orlando?

You can’t believe it. One of the blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Orlando, preferably with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood materials are a possible alternative and likely won’t need replacement for a few years. But if you’re seeking a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Orlando 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking tattered even before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the typical problem, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your aluminum blinds.

Aluminum blinds are cheap to get and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They don’t bring much to the table in terms of durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window treatment that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Orlando, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Orlando homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of directing natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on a metal blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than metal blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you’re creating an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always enhance a room.
