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

August 24, 2020

It happened again. One of the aluminum window blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Miami, preferably with a product that offers superior durability and appeal.

Wood materials could work well and should last for a few years. But if you’re looking for a durable choice that lasts a lifetime, the best option is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Miami

The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged even before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your aluminum window treatments.

Metal blinds may be easy to buy and put up, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window treatments and not an investment. They bring very little 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 wrong for your home?

Polywood Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Miami, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Miami homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of shifting the natural light and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

And if you want something that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and easy to clean. They even come with 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 a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

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 going for an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
