What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in New York?

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window blinds that came with your home broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in New York, preferably with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Traditional wood products are a possible alternative and should last for a while. But if you’re looking for 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 New York 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking worn out much earlier. Broken slats are the typical problem, but metal blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your aluminum window treatments.

Typical metal blinds are easy to purchase and install, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table if you’re looking for durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window covering that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in New York, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for New York homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than your old blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will likely never need replacing, you should step up to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient 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 metal blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re creating an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
