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

August 24, 2020

Let us guess... one of the blinds that came with your home snapped a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Boston, ideally with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood materials might work and likely won’t need replacement for quite some time. But if you’re seeking a window treatment that lasts a lifetime, the smart choice is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider 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 ragged much earlier. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to get and install, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not an upgrade. 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 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 perfect for Boston homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

And if you want something 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-engineered shutters 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. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get 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 efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your home will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

The good news 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.
