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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window 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 something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

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, your best bet 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 aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking tattered well 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’s no telling what problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are cheap to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They don’t bring much to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same product 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 shifting the natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than your old blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade to a well-crafted 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-resistant and fire-proof and easy to clean. They even come with 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 a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy 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 fit right in.
