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

August 24, 2020

It happened again. One of the metal blinds that came with your home bent a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Austin, ideally with a product that offers superior durability and appeal.

Traditional wood products might work and should last for quite some time. But if you’re looking for a durable choice that will outlast your time in the home, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Austin 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking tattered well before that. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an upgrade. They don’t bring much to the table if you’re looking for home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window treatment that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Austin, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Austin homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of shifting the natural light and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than your old blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and easy to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your home will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you’re going for an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
