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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Seattle, preferably with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Traditional wood products might work and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a while. But if you’re looking for a durable choice that will outlast your time in the home, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Seattle 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking worn out much earlier. Cracked and snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Typical metal blinds are cheap to get and install, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window coverings and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table if you’re looking for home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. 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 considering replacing broken blinds in Seattle, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Seattle homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of shifting the natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should step up to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-crafted 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 snap to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you’re going for an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always fit right in.
