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

Nate Gromen

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 something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a few years. But if you’re seeking a durable choice 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 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 even before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. 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 upgrade. They bring very little to the table when it comes to reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments 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 shifting the 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 well-crafted plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings 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 home will be at a consistent, 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 a first-time apartment feeling, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
