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

Darren Zuckerman

You can’t believe it. One of the blinds that you’ve thought about replacing snapped a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in New York City, preferably with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Traditional wood products are a possible alternative and should last for quite some time. 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 New York City 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional 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 twisted, discoloured, and bent. 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 easy to purchase and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table if you’re looking for reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window covering that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in New York City, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for New York City 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 well-crafted plantation shutter, such as 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. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you would never 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 efficient 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 – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you’re creating an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from contemporary to classic, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
