What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Washington DC?

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window blinds that you’ve thought about replacing broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Washington DC, ideally with a product more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade are a possible alternative and should last for a few years. But if you’re looking for a window treatment that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Washington DC 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out even before that. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you looked around your house right now, you may be surprised what you will find with your aluminum window treatments.

Aluminum blinds are cheap to buy and put up, 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 replace snapped metal blinds with the same window covering that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Washington DC, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Washington DC 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 aluminum blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should step up to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-crafted shutters won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your other options. 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 steady temperature to ensure comfort.

A great thing about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you want an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always fit right in.
