What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Southern California?

It happened again. One of the metal blinds that was installed by the previous owner bent a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Southern California, preferably with a product more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade could work well and likely won’t need replacement for a while. But if you want a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the best option is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Southern California 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking tattered well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the primary culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Aluminum blinds may be easy to buy and put up, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not an upgrade. They bring very little to the table in terms of durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window treatment that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Southern California, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Southern California homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should step up to a solidly built plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-crafted shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of the humidity levels and sunlight exposure in your home. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

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

The good news 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 trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
