At Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area, our customers often ask when they need to replace their old window fashion. The answer isn’t necessarily simple, because it depends on a lot of factors. Sometimes an issue with a window treatment can be fixed, and sometimes, it’s just time to get a replacement. If you want some advice on what your next steps should be, contact one of our specialists today.
Things to Consider
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.
- Issues with lifting or lowering your treatment. As they get older, some blinds and shades don’t operate properly. Sometimes, it’s an easy fix—either in your own home or with a professional’s help. However, sometimes, it just can’t be fixed, in which case, you’ll want a new, functioning product.
- Damage from UV rays. Older blinds and shades may start to show damage from harmful UV rays, such as cracked or warped slats or faded or yellowed fabric. Those issues can’t be fixed, but in good news, contemporary products offer incredible UV protection for your home as well as damage protection. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow, and Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are made from a polyester fabric with a white backing facing the outside to eliminate fading.
- Safety issues. Older treatments often have dangling cords that can pose dangers to children and pets. You might consider 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.
