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

Holly Perron

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

Wood materials could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for quite some time. But if you want a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Philadelphia 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking ragged much earlier. Broken slats are the main culprit, but aluminum blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you checked your blinds right now, you may be surprised what you find with your aluminum blinds.

Typical metal blinds are easy to purchase and install, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window coverings and not an upgrade. They don’t bring anything to the table in terms of 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 Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When 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 much longer lasting than metal blinds.

And if you want something that will likely never need replacing, you should step up to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a snap 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.

The good news 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 thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
