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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the blinds that came with your home bent a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Cleveland, ideally with a product more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade might work and likely won’t need replacement for a few years. But if you’re seeking a window treatment that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Cleveland 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for metal blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely 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 looked around your house right now, you may be surprised what you will find with your aluminum window treatments.

Metal blinds are cheap to purchase and install, but they are a quick fix for window coverings and not an investment. They bring very little to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same product that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Cleveland, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Cleveland 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’re looking for something that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage 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 – something you would never find on traditional blinds. 

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 efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

The good news about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you want an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from contemporary to classic, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
