What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Phoenix?08/24/2020Greg Arnett Let us guess... one of the metal blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Phoenix, ideally with a window treatment that brings more style and value to your space. Traditional wood products are a possible alternative and should last for a few years. But if you’re looking for a durable choice that lasts a lifetime, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters. Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Phoenix The typical lifespan for metal blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your metal blinds. Metal blinds are cheap to purchase and install, but they are a quick fix for window coverings and not an upgrade. They don’t bring anything to the table if you’re looking for durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same product that is so wrong for your home? Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Phoenix, you should switch to plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are the best choice for Phoenix homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing sunlight and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than aluminum blinds. If you’re looking for something that will last a lifetime, you should step up to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters 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 a snap to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a consistent, comfortable temperature. Another benefit about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. 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.
