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

August 24, 2020

Let us guess... one of the metal blinds that was installed by the previous owner broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Philadelphia, preferably with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood materials might work and likely won’t need replacement for quite some time. But if you’re looking for a better option that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Philadelphia

The average lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking ragged much earlier. Broken slats are the primary culprit, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you checked your blinds right now, you may be surprised what you find with your metal blinds.

Typical metal blinds may be easy to purchase and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window coverings and not an investment. They don’t bring anything to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window covering that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Philadelphia, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Philadelphia homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will likely never need replacing, you should step up to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t damage or warp 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. They even come with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on traditional blinds. 

Polywood is also much more 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 your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you want an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
