When you’ve been in the window fashion business as long as we have here at Window Products, you frequently hear people ask how to know when it’s time to replace window treatments. Although it seems like a straightforward question, the answer isn’t always simple. Which is why we take the time to understand each customer’s goals, needs, and issues—after all, sometimes a window treatment concern can be easily fixed without making a big investment. Read on to learn about some common issues, and then, if you’re still curious about whether it’s time to make a change, speak with one of our specialists here in Branford. We’ll be happy to help you figure it out.

Safety and Accessibility

Many older window treatments have corded operating systems; their dangling cords can be a choking hazard for children and pets. Cordless options are safer and tidier. For example, you could choose the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system or the Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization option. If you go with motorization, you will also be able to access those hard-to-reach windows. Plus, PowerView allows you to move your blinds and shades even when you’re not at home.

Functionality, Warping, or Fading Issues

Over time, it is not unusual for blinds or shades to not operate properly—you might notice you can’t raise the treatment fully or get it to lower without being wonky. In some cases, the product can be repaired. If it can’t, maybe it is time to see what is new on the market. Also, older blinds and shades may start to show damage from harmful UV rays, such as cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. Many current products are made with UV protection, which prevents that kind of damage. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow, and the backing of Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades is a white polyester fabric that resists fading.
