What Window Treatments To Get When Replacing Broken Window Blinds in Oklahoma City?

Let us guess... one of the metal blinds that you’ve thought about replacing broke a slat again. Now it’s time for replacing your broken window blinds in Oklahoma City, ideally with something more durable, reliable, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Wood blinds or a window shade are a possible alternative and likely won’t need replacement for quite some time. But if you’re looking for 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 Consider When Replacing Broken Window Blinds In Oklahoma City 

Metal Blinds in a living room.
The average lifetime for traditional aluminum blinds is approximately 4 to 7 years -- and they will begin looking worn out even before that. Broken slats are the primary culprit, but traditional blinds also get tangled, yellowed, stained, and warped. If you checked your blinds right now, there are many possible problems you will find with your aluminum blinds.

Metal blinds are cheap to buy and put up, but they are a less appealing solution for window treatments and not a good way to add value. They bring very little to the table if you’re looking for durability, style, or ease of use. So why switch out broken blinds with the same product that is so easy to damage?

Polywood Shutters Are the Sensible Window Treatments When Replacing Blinds

When you’re thinking about replacing broken blinds in Oklahoma City, you should switch to plantation shutters.  Plantation shutters are ideal for Oklahoma City homeowners because beyond offering an elegant look, they provide a graceful way of directing natural light and avoiding sun glare. Plantation shutters are also substantially sturdier than aluminum blinds.

And if you want something that will likely never need replacing, you should upgrade even further to a well-crafted plantation shutter, like our popular Polywood shutters. These American-crafted shutters won’t damage or warp easily regardless of the amount of direct sunlight and humidity. The faux wood is resistant to moisture and fire and easy to clean. These shudders are protected by a lifetime warranty – something you would never find on an aluminum blind. 

Polywood is also much more efficient than your blinds or shades. In fact, Polywood offers an incredible insulation system that’s up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and 1600% more than your old blinds, meaning your interior space will be at a steady temperature to ensure comfort.

A great thing about plantation shutters – outside of their durability and energy efficiency -- is that they fit perfectly with your current interior. Unless you want an apartment look, 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.
