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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the metal blinds that was installed by the previous owner bent a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Sacramento, preferably with a window treatment that offers superior durability and appeal.

Traditional wood products might work and should last for a few years. But if you want a window treatment that will outlast your time in the home, the smart choice is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Sacramento 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking worn out well before that. Broken or snapped slats are the main culprit, but aluminum blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible problems you find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to get and install, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window coverings and not an upgrade. They don’t bring much to the table in terms of home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why switch out broken blinds with the same product that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Sacramento, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Sacramento homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of shifting the natural light and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than aluminum blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a breeze to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your traditional window treatments. 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.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you want an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always enhance a room.
