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

Lisa Renee Nieberding

It happened again. One of the aluminum window blinds that came with your home broke a slat again. The time is now for replacing your broken window blinds in Cincinnati, preferably with a window treatment more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood materials might work and should last for a few years. But if you’re seeking a better option that lasts a lifetime, your best bet is installing custom faux wood products, like our Polywood® shutters.

Consider This When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Cincinnati 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The typical lifespan for metal blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will likely start looking worn out much earlier. Broken or snapped slats are the primary culprit, but metal blinds also get tangled, misshapen, and faded. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you can find with your metal blinds.

Metal blinds are easy to purchase and install, but they are a less appealing solution for window coverings and not a good way to add value. They don’t bring anything to the table if you’re looking for reliability, appeal, and functionality. So why replace a broken aluminum blind with the same product that is so wrong for your home?

Polywood Shutters Are the Preferred Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

If you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Cincinnati, you should upgrade to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Cincinnati homeowners because in addition to expressive style, they provide a graceful way of shifting the natural light and preventing glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will last a lifetime, you should upgrade to a solidly built plantation shutter, such as our Polywood shutters. These American-crafted shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of humidity or sun exposure. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and a snap to clean. They even come with a lifetime warranty – a feature you won’t find on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood also offers more energy savings than your other options. In fact, Polywood offers superior insulation that’s up to 70% more energy-effective than wood shutters and 1600% more than aluminum blinds, meaning your home will be at a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

A great thing about plantation shutters – on top of their longevity and efficiency -- is that they work seamlessly with your existing design. Unless you want an apartment look, aluminum blinds tend to stick out like a sore thumb. But from contemporary to classic, plantation shutters and their attractive louvers and tilt rods seem to always enhance a room.
