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

August 24, 2020

It happened again. One of the blinds that came with your home snapped a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Boise, ideally with a product more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade are a possible alternative and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a few years. But if you’re looking for a window treatment that lasts a lifetime, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Boise

The average lifetime for metal blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out even before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the typical problem, but aluminum blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are cheap to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window coverings and not a good way to add value. They don’t bring much 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 easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Boise, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Boise homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and limiting 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 to a solidly built plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

The good news about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you’re creating an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
