What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Fort Myers?

Charlie Cole and Brady Parker

You can’t believe it. One of the blinds that came with your home bent a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Fort Myers, preferably with a window treatment more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood materials might work and shouldn’t have to be replaced for a while. But if you’re seeking 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 Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Fort Myers 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking ragged even before that. Broken or snapped slats are the typical problem, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you looked around your house right now, there’s no telling what problems you find with your aluminum blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to buy and put up, but they are merely a band-aid solution for window treatments and not an upgrade. They don’t bring anything to the table in terms of reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same product that is so fragile and unfit?

Polywood Products Are the Smart Choice When Replacing Blinds

If you’re considering replacing broken blinds in Fort Myers, you should make the move to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Fort Myers homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of directing natural light and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than aluminum blinds.

If you’re looking for something that will likely never need replacing, you should upgrade even further to a solidly built plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-engineered shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and a breeze to clean. Our shutters offer peace of mind with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they blend into almost any style. 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 thick louvers and cordless tilt-rods seem to always fit right in.
