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

Holly Perron

Let us guess... one of the blinds that came with your home broke a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Boston, ideally with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood materials could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for quite some time. But if you’re seeking a durable choice that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Boston 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for metal blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out much earlier. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but aluminum blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds may be easy to buy and put up, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not an investment. They bring very little to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Boston, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Boston homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on an aluminum 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-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than metal blinds, meaning your home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re going for an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always fit right in.
