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

August 24, 2020

Let us guess... one of the aluminum window blinds that was installed by the previous owner broke a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Tampa, ideally with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Traditional wood products might work and likely won’t need replacement for a few years. But if you’re looking for a durable choice that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Tampa

The average lifetime for aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking tattered even before that. Cracked and 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 can find with your aluminum blinds.

Typical metal blinds are easy to buy and put up, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window treatments and not an upgrade. They don’t bring anything to the table in terms of durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Tampa, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Tampa homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of directing natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than your old blinds.

And if you want something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t damage or warp easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find 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 your old blinds, meaning your home will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

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 look, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always elevate a space.
