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

August 24, 2020

Let us guess... one of the aluminum window blinds that came with your home broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Charlotte, preferably with a window treatment that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood blinds or a window shade could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a few years. But if you want a durable choice that will outlast your time in the home, the best option is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Charlotte 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifespan for aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking worn out even before that. Broken slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to get and install, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table when it comes to reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Charlotte, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Charlotte homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you would never 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 home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

The good news about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you want a first-time apartment feeling, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
