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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window blinds that came with your home broke a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Atlanta, preferably with something that offers superior durability and appeal.

Wood materials could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a few years. But if you’re looking for a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Atlanta

The average lifetime for traditional aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out even before that. Cracked and 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 will find with your aluminum window treatments.

Typical metal blinds are cheap to buy and put up, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window coverings and not an investment. They don’t bring anything to the table when it comes to home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window covering that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Atlanta, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Atlanta homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than your old blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade even further to a well-crafted plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-crafted shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you want an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
