Lifespan of Shutters vs Blinds
Blinds are wonderful for adding colour and texture to your windows, with more design options available and depending on what kind of blind you choose, the average lifespan of a blind window treatment is 7 years. Where wood may last as long as 15 years if not in extreme heat and sunlight and if properly cared for. Roller blinds on average would certainly remain around the 5 to 7-year mark, with cleaning once a week. Venetian blinds, be it 25mm or 50mm may last as long as 5 years, if no repairs are needed for bent slats.
It is undeniable that with powder-coated extruded Aluminium shutters that the lifespan on an extremely conservative estimate is 30 years, longer in most cases. Aluminium Reinforced Shutters’ artificial structure means that they are incredibly durable. The stiles, rails and louvers are made with an aluminium core that is actually co-extruded into the solid polymer at the same time the component is made. The aluminium core is lighter than wood (for less strain on window frames and surrounding walls) and makes much wider louvers which makes it possible to have better views wherever they are installed.
The co-extruded aluminium support also makes it possible for aluminium reinforced window shutters to be set up with screws for top-quality strength, compared with other poly shutters that are just glued together. Using screws is by far the most secure method for assembling shutter panels and also allows for easy replacement of a louver if it becomes damaged.
Aluminium Reinforced shutters have a been coated with powder coating process in a plant and are moisture resistant and fire retardant. They offer a high insulation value against heat and cold and are easy to clean and maintain. With low maintenance and guarantee not to warp or discolour, these are a perfect long-term solution.
There is no doubt that interior shutters are attractive. They come in a variety of sizes and the finish is clean and sleek, as well as functional mounting options. They fit in with just about any décor and offer a clean, cohesive look throughout the home. You can select from 4 different colours. Remember that shutters are seen from both the interior of your home as well as the exterior. If the exterior of your home is dark, Satin White will brighten up the space.
Easy to clean.
Interior shutters are virtually maintenance-free. Use a damp cloth from time to time and wipe off the dirt, dust, and grime. In addition, you don’t need to take them down in order to clean them as you would with other types of window coverings. A quick wipe down is all you need. The shutters have a larger surface area than blinds making them much easier to clean.
