What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in San Jose?

It happened again. One of the aluminum window blinds that was installed by the previous owner snapped a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in San Jose, ideally with a product that offers superior durability and appeal.

Wood blinds or a window shade could work well and likely won’t need replacement for a while. But if you want a better option that will outlast your time in the home, the smart choice is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

What to Know When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In San Jose

The typical lifespan for aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking tattered well before that. Broken slats are the typical problem, but traditional blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you went around your house right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your aluminum blinds.

Aluminum blinds may be easy to purchase and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window coverings and not an investment. They don’t bring much to the table in terms of 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 Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in San Jose, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are the best choice for San Jose homeowners because on top of their appealing appearance, they provide a graceful way of directing natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also vastly more durable than metal blinds.

And if you want something that will likely never need replacing, you should upgrade to a solidly built plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-made window treatments won’t break, discolour, or damage easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is moisture-resistant and fire-proof and easy to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – something you won’t get on an aluminum blind. 

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

The good news 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 be the wrong choice. But from trendy to traditional, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always fit right in.
