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

David White

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 want a durable choice that you’ll never have to replace, the best option is installing customized faux wood options, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Miami 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking ragged well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your aluminum window treatments.

Metal blinds may be easy to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They bring very little to the table when it comes to reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why switch out broken blinds with the same product that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Miami, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Miami homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade even further to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments 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 an aluminum 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 energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than metal blinds, meaning your home will be at a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

The good news about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you want an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always fit right in.
