What is the Expected Lifetime of Eclipse Shutters compared to Blinds and Drapery?
Choosing interior window coverings can be difficult. Most homeowners want to be sure they are purchasing window coverings that will look beautiful and do their job of protecting a room from light and airflow. In todays economy, they also want to be sure that the window coverings they choose have value. When it comes to comparing the value of blinds, curtains and shutters, plantation shutters win hands down. Their long life means that they are a greater value to the homeowner and future homeowners than any other option

1. Lifetime of Curtains and Drapery

Curtains can be made from a number of different materials, from cotton to rayon to silk. Some curtains and draperies are sheer and delicate, while others have sturdy linings and could almost stand on their own. Each has its own lifespan and care instructions. On average, though, curtains and draperies need to be cleaned at least twice per year, due to dust and dirt build-up, which will eventually deteriorate the fabric. With proper care, it’s estimated that curtains and drapes will last 6-10 years.

2. Lifetime of Blinds

Blinds, though more similar to shutters than curtains and drapery, are nowhere near as substantial and sturdy as plantation shutters. Their ultra-lightweight slats are prone to bending and breaking. Much more difficult to clean than shutters, built up dust and grime often age them before their time. Generally, blinds can be expected to last for 5-8 years.

3. Lifetime of Shutters

Plantation or California shutters can generally be expected to last many years, with minimal care. They are extremely durable and are scratch and dent-resistant. Eclipse Shutters is the only shutter company that offers a 25-year warranty on their shutters. They won’t be damaged by the sun since they’re UV resistant, and can’t be damaged by water or steam in high moisture areas. You can even clean with them mild soap and water and the surface won’t be damaged unlike their more costly wood counterparts. Their greatest advantage is for those who seek control over both light and airflow into their homes and are looking for a very low maintenance and durable window covering.
