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

August 24, 2020

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 a product 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 lasts a lifetime, 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 average lifespan for aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged much earlier. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but aluminum blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Typical metal blinds may be easy to get and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an upgrade. 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

When 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 beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of shifting the natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable 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 humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and easy to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. 

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-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

The good news about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re going for a first-time apartment feeling, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
