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

Kevin McCormack

It happened again. One of the blinds that was installed by the previous owner broke a slat again. The time has come for replacing your broken window blinds in Jacksonville, ideally with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Traditional wood products might work and should last for a while. But if you want a durable choice that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Jacksonville 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking worn out much earlier. Broken or snapped slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Aluminum blinds may be easy to get and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table when it comes to home-enhancing appeal, function, and durability. So why switch out broken blinds with the same window covering that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Jacksonville, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Jacksonville homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of shifting the natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than your old blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will last a lifetime, you should step up to a faux wood plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old 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 blend into almost any style. Unless you’re creating an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to be the wrong choice. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
