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

August 24, 2020

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 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 Phoenix 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking ragged well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you will find with your aluminum blinds.

Aluminum blinds are cheap to purchase and install, but they are a quick fix for window coverings and not an investment. They don’t bring much to the table if you’re looking for durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window treatment that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Shutters Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If 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 beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing sunlight and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than your old 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-made window treatments won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a reliable and comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re creating a first-time apartment feeling, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
