What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in San Antonio?

August 24, 2020

It happened again. One of the aluminum window blinds that you’ve thought about replacing snapped a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in San Antonio, preferably with a window treatment more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood materials might work and should last for a while. But if you’re seeking a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In San Antonio

The average lifetime for aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking tattered well before that. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but aluminum blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are cheap to buy and put up, 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 reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Shutters Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in San Antonio, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for San Antonio homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing sunlight and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than your old blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will likely never need replacing, you should upgrade even further to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than metal blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you’re creating an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from contemporary to classic, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
