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

It happened again. One of the blinds that you’ve thought about replacing snapped a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Boise, ideally with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood blinds or a window shade are a possible alternative and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a few years. But if you want a window treatment that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Boise 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for metal blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the typical problem, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you find with your metal blinds.

Metal 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 much to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same product 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 much longer lasting than aluminum blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade to a solidly built plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on a metal blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a consistent, comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you’re creating a first-time apartment feeling, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always fit right in.
