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

Steve Hill

Let us guess... one of the blinds that you’ve thought about replacing broke a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Detroit, ideally with something that brings more style and value to your space.

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

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Detroit

The typical lifespan for metal blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged well before that. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you went around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you can find with your aluminum blinds.

Aluminum blinds are easy 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 anything to the table in terms of reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window treatment that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Detroit, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Detroit homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight 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 solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t crack, warp, or chip regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a snap to clean. They even come with 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 an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. 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 sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always elevate a space.
