What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in San Diego?

Tyson Williams

It happened again. One of the blinds that you’ve thought about replacing bent a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in San Diego, ideally with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Traditional wood products are a possible alternative and should last for a few years. But if you’re looking for a window treatment that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In San Diego 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for traditional aluminum blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking ragged even before that. Broken slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you checked your blinds right now, there’s no telling what problems you find with your metal blinds.

Typical metal blinds are cheap to purchase and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They don’t bring anything to the table in terms of reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same window treatment that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in San Diego, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for San Diego homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of directing sunlight and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will last as long as you’re in the home, you should step up to a well-crafted plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a snap to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

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-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a consistent, 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 going for an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from contemporary to classic, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
