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

Blake Jarman

You can’t believe it. One of the metal blinds that was installed by the previous owner broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Raleigh, preferably with a product that offers superior durability and appeal.

Traditional wood products might work and likely won’t need replacement for a while. But if you’re seeking a better option that lasts a lifetime, your best bet is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Raleigh 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking worn out much earlier. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you went around your house right now, you may be surprised what you can find with your metal blinds.

Aluminum blinds are cheap to get and install, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window coverings and not a good way to add value. They don’t bring anything to the table when it comes to home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same product that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Raleigh, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Raleigh homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than your old blinds.

And if you want something that will likely never need replacing, you should step up to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage easily 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 a metal blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system 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 steady temperature to ensure comfort.

A great thing about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re creating an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always enhance a room.
