The question we’re asked most often is, “When should I replace my window treatments?” It seems like a pretty straightforward question, but it really depends on a number of factors. Maybe your window treatments aren’t operating correctly anymore or you simply want a fresh look. Or perhaps your lifestyle has changed or you are looking for a more energy-efficient window covering. If you haven’t bought new window treatments in a while, there is a good chance it is time to call in the professionals. At Shutter Guy serving Charleston, we’ll be happy to help you make the right choice for your home and budget!
Questions to Ask
At Shutter Guy, our trained window treatment consultants know the right questions ask to determine if it is time to replace your window treatments or merely repair and clean them. However, if any of the following are true for you, it might be time for a change:
- Your blinds won’t raise
- The treatment’s slats are broken or discolored
- The shades are faded
- Your blinds don’t close properly
- Dangling cords are a problem
- You can’t reach your shades to raise or lower them easily
- You are just sick of the same old thing
Problem Raising Your Blinds or Shades
Over time, it is not unusual for blinds or shades to not operate properly. In some cases, they can be repaired. If they can’t, maybe it is time to see what is new on the market. We recommend Hunter Douglas Window Fashions. They offer the most comprehensive collection blinds, shades, and shutters available today. Best yet, they have a window covering option that is sure to meet anyone’s budget requirements!
Broken Slats or Faded Shades
Older blinds and shades may start to show damage from harmful UV rays, such as cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. Not anymore. Today, the more efficient models offer incredible UV protection and prevent them from damage. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow. Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are made from a polyester fabric with a white backing facing the outside to eliminate fading, and they feature a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction for maximum energy efficiency.
Child and Pet Safety and Hard-to-Reach Windows
If you have children or pets in the home now, you may want to think of replacing your corded window treatments with a cordless option such as the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system. Another cordless option that is also good for hard-to-reach windows is Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization option. You can operate your blinds or shades remotely, even when you aren’t home, with the PowerView App on your mobile device or tablet. Not only convenient, motorization adds another level of security too.
