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

Let us guess... one of the metal blinds that you’ve thought about replacing bent a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Austin, ideally with something that offers superior durability and appeal.

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

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Austin 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking tattered even before that. Broken slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you checked your blinds right now, there’s no telling what problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Aluminum blinds are easy to get and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an upgrade. They don’t bring anything to the table if you’re looking for home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window treatment that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Austin, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Austin homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of directing 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 as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on a metal blind. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient 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 rooms will stay a consistent, 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 want 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 enhance a room.
