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

August 24, 2020

Let us guess... one of the aluminum window blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Southern California, ideally with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood blinds or a window shade might work and should last for quite some time. But if you’re looking for a window treatment that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Southern California

The typical lifespan for aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking worn out much earlier. Broken slats are the main culprit, but aluminum blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your metal blinds.

Aluminum blinds may be easy to buy and put up, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table when it comes to home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window covering that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Southern California, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Southern California homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than aluminum blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will last a lifetime, you should step up to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and easy to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

The good news about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re creating an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
