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

August 24, 2020

It happened again. One of the blinds that came with your home bent a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Destin, preferably with something that brings more style and value to your space.

Traditional wood products might work and should last for a while. But if you want a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the best option is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Destin 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking worn out well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your aluminum blinds.

Typical metal blinds may be easy to purchase and install, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They don’t bring anything to the table in terms of 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

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Destin, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Destin homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t damage or warp easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you want 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 elevate a space.
