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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the aluminum window 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 could work well and shouldn’t have to be replaced for quite some time. But if you’re seeking a better option that you’ll never have to replace, the smart choice is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, 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 may start looking worn out even before that. Broken slats are the typical problem, but metal blinds also get twisted, discoloured, and bent. If you looked around your house right now, there are many possible problems you find with your aluminum blinds.

Aluminum blinds are easy to get and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not an investment. They don’t bring much to the table when it comes to durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same window treatment 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 perfect for Fort Myers homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of shifting the 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 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 offers more energy savings than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than metal blinds, meaning your rooms will stay a reliable and comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and 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 trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always fit right in.
