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

Darren Wong

You can’t believe it. 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 Honolulu, ideally with a product that brings more style and value to your space.

Wood blinds or a window shade might work and shouldn’t have to be replaced for quite some time. But if you want a better option that you’ll never have to replace, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Honolulu 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking ragged well before that. Broken or snapped 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 can 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 investment. They bring very little to the table in terms of durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same product that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Honolulu, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for Honolulu homeowners because in addition to expressive style, 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.

And if you want something that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade to a solidly built 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-proof and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on a metal blind. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers a progressive insulation system that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a reliable and comfortable temperature.

The good news 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 stick out like a sore thumb. But from modern to traditional, plantation shutters and their sturdy slats and cordless function seem to always enhance a room.
