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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window blinds that you’ve thought about replacing bent a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Honolulu, ideally with something that brings more style and value to your space.

Traditional wood products could work well and likely won’t need replacement for a while. But if you’re looking for a better option that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Honolulu

The average lifespan for metal blinds lasts about 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking ragged well before that. Broken slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you checked your blinds right now, you may be surprised what you will find with your aluminum window treatments.

Typical metal blinds are easy to purchase and install, but they are a quick fix for window treatments and not an upgrade. They bring very little to the table in terms of reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same product that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Honolulu, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Honolulu homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a superior method of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade even further to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments 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 breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on a metal blind. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your traditional window treatments. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a consistent, comfortable temperature.

A great thing about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. Unless you’re going for an apartment aesthetic, aluminum blinds tend to stand out. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
