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

It happened again. One of the metal blinds that came with your home bent a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Dallas, ideally with something that brings more style and value to your space.

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

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Dallas 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged much earlier. Broken slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you went around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Typical metal blinds are easy to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They bring very little to the table when it comes to reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window covering that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Dallas, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Dallas homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will likely never need replacing, you should upgrade even further to a well-crafted plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

The good news about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. 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 thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
