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

Dan Taylor

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window blinds that you’ve thought about replacing snapped 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 likely won’t need replacement for a few years. But if you want 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 Atlanta

The average lifetime for aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged even before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible 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 much to the table in terms of home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why switch out broken blinds 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 Atlanta, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Atlanta homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood 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. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on a metal blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient 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 metal blinds, meaning your home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you’re going for 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.
