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

August 24, 2020

You can’t believe it. One of the metal blinds that you’ve thought about replacing broke a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Hartford, ideally with a product more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood materials are a possible alternative and likely won’t need replacement for quite some time. But if you’re looking for a better option that will outlast your time in the home, your best bet is installing custom-made faux wood shutters, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Hartford 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for metal blinds is 4 to 7 years -- and they may start looking worn out well before that. Cracked and snapped slats are the main culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you looked around your house right now, you may be surprised what you find with your aluminum blinds.

Typical metal blinds are cheap 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 durability, style, or ease of use. So why replace snapped metal blinds with the same product that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Products Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Hartford, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are perfect for Hartford homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a superior method of directing sunlight and limiting sun glare. Plantation shutters are also much longer lasting than metal blinds.

If you want a window treatment that will last a lifetime, you should step up to a well-crafted plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is moisture-proof and fire-proof and a snap to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on traditional blinds. 

Polywood also is much more energy-efficient 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 rooms will stay a consistent, comfortable temperature.

Another benefit about plantation shutters – in addition to their strength and efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you’re creating an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always elevate a space.
